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.

September 22 – Wordsworth's Tintern Abbey: What is it that is so Amazing About Nature? This is Wordsworth's strange and haunting exploration of the mysteries of nature, the mystery of the beautiful and the mysteries of our inner nature. You will be transported to your own "Tintern Abbey" - guaranteed!
Presenter: Steve Lund, retired Academic Dean of Dallas Lutheran School

October 20 – Food, Fun, and Festivals We will celebrate with some food stories, some funny stories and catch up on festivals we may have missed.
Presenter: Rose-Mary Rumbley, teacher, author, lecturer

November 17 – The Way West – or – How did they do that?
Explorers and settlers had man reasons for going west: abundant fertile land and game, adventure, gold fever, dreams of wealth, religious freedom. There were six major routes – the Oregon, California, Santa Fe, Mormon, Bozeman and Gila trails – each with its special dangers and hardships. Have you imagined what it must have been like to make these journeys? In this class, we will travel with the pioneers, explore the land, the obstacles, the heartbreaks, and the determination that characterized the Way West.
Presenter: Gayle Ross, world adventurer and travel writer
