Seminar on choosing a nursing home planned for Sept. 7

Assessing the care offered in nursing homes is the subject of a meeting planned for the afternoon of Sept. 7.

Kansas Advocates for Better Care is sponsoring the event, which will run from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Sedgwick County Extension Service, 7001 W. 21st St. North. It's intended to help participants determine what standards they should set and assess as they choose a nursing home.

The event is free and open to the public, but those attending do need to RSVP by Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Sharee A. Wiggins, a nurse practitioner and geriatrics faculty member at the University of Kansas Medical Center & Landon Center on Aging, is the guest speaker.
