Life is full of decisions – but those commanding a loving, compassionate touch are the hardest of all. Entrusting your loved one(s) to strangers is easier if you have "confidence in your choice". For over 62 years, Christian Care Centers has been caring for seniors with the compassionate care and dignity they deserve. We currently serve more seniors in the Metroplex than any other faith-based, not-for-profit senior care provider. We believe in Wellness of the Whole Person, and every facet of our Continuum of Care reflects that mission.

Research has shown that healthy aging includes keeping the mind active and stimulated. It is an honor and privilege for Christian Care Centers to join Richland College in their Emeritus Program, because we believe these programs assist greatly in maintaining mental agility in our seniors.

We welcome you to join us at Christian Care Centers’ Greenway Village Retirement Living Dining Room for the following exciting lectures. The topics are varied and we hope that at least one (and hopefully more) will strike your fancy.

February 16 – "Hail to the Chiefs" In honor of Presidents Day, we'll look at great speeches, fateful decisions, huge mistakes, wise and witty quotes, and little-known trivia. Who were the best and worst presidents? Who were the smartest, the toughest, the meanest, the luckiest, the funniest? What are the best books, songs and movies about our presidents? Join us for a lively and informative session as we say "Hail to the Chiefs."
Presenter: Chris Tucker, journalist, and commentator for KERA 90.1 FM, National Public Radio.

March 16 - "The Moonlight Sonata" - Everyone’s Favorite Beethoven—Goes Under the Glass for Inspection." What is it about—is it really about moonlight? Come listen to this revolutionary piece and be prepared to see it in a new light.

May 6 - What Marie Antoinette Wore to the Revolution? What did anyone wear? Why do we wear clothes in the first place? What's so important about our apparel? Marie Antoinette certainly set the style...so did a lot of other women.
