Moadieh Evangelical Center and Palm Village Retirement Community in California, USA organized the first Lebanese Interfaith Elder Care Conference. It took place on the 5th and 6th of September, 2015 in Larnaca Cyprus. Participants were managers of 12 different Lebanese long term care centers of diverse faiths all having one objective in mind, caring for seniors in Lebanon.
Lectures tackled different topics relating to senior care. The first day lectures were “Technologies to Support Older Adults and their Caregivers” by Majd Alwan Ph.D and “Treatment of Diabetes Today & Tomorrow” By Paul Norwood MD. The second day lectures were “Collaboration, the Challenges and Possibilities” by Rick Stiffney Ph.D and “Eldercare in Lebanon, where are we now and where are we headed?” by Joyce Khouri Eid BSN, MBA
Learning, sharing and participating in collaborative work was the greatest success in this conference.
We give thanks to all donors who made this conference a reality mainly Palm Village Retirement Community, Mennonite Health Services, Mennonite Central Committee, Leading Age California and many many others.
And again, Moadieh Evangelical Center proves to be a leader in its field.
