The Frewsburg Rest Home will continue its series of educational seminars with a one-hour seminar, Facing the Challenges of Parkinson's Disease, at 2 and 7 p.m. Wednesday, in the second floor recreation room at the rest home.
The seminar, which is free and open to the public, is being provided through a grant obtained by the Erie 2 Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES. The presenter is Paul G. H. Robbins, a graduate of Jamestown High School and the University of Notre Dame. Robbins is a masters candidate through George Washington University.
"This training is guaranteed to be of interest to personal and professional care givers," said Dennis R. Bechmann, Frewsburg Rest Home administrator. "The seminar is designed to provide guidelines for dealing with those who have the disease and highlight easily used techniques to manage behavior and improve the quality of life for those afflicted."
Seats may be limited at the 2 p.m. session because it is a mandatory in-service for Frewsburg Rest Home staff members. Refreshments will be served and the program will start on time.
Participants are encouraged to use the visitor's parking lot on the right-hand side facing the building and the main entrance at the back of the lot.
