Our guest speakers for May are Betty Clark and Patrick Arbore. The last time this dynamic duo spoke to the Senior Moments community it was nothing short of dynamic. Both Patrick and Betty will provided everyone with practical and insightful information for those coping with depression. While the subject matter can be hard to discuss, they both made us feel comfortable and even made us laugh the last time they spoke to our Senior Moments community. These experts combined are the most amazing source of information for elders battling depression you will find in the country. We encourage all who know of seniors who need assistance with depression and those who work with seniors to hear this important discussion.
