Finding and Using Senior Services in Your Local Community
Please let us know if you plan to join us for this in-person program.
As we age, most of us will identify service and support needs that will require us to engage with a new system of services, to learn new terminology, and to communicate with a new set of professionals. We may recognize these needs gradually for our parents, or for ourselves, and we may have time to prepare. However, we also may have these needs thrust upon us following an accident, a medical diagnosis, or a hospitalization. Either way, finding the appropriate agencies and professionals to address these needs can be overwhelming to adult-children, their parents, and other family members.
Whenever possible, knowing where to go and whom to contact in the community before there is a crisis is essential in helping adult-children and other family caregivers feel more informed and less stressed. This introductory program will help participants to become more knowledgeable about the full array of services
and resources available in the local community for people who are aging and to help caregivers wherever they are in their caregiving journey.
Speaker: Frances Hall, Founder and Executive Director of ACAPcommunity (Adult Children of Aging Parents)
