[March 15, 2012]
SPRINGFIELD -- The Area Agency on Aging
for Lincolnland, in cooperation with Senior Citizens of Logan
County, has scheduled a "Lunch and Learn" program for informal
caregivers of older adults and grandparents and other relatives
raising children. The presentation will be at the Oasis Senior
Center, 501 Pulaski St. in Lincoln, on March 20, from noon to 1 p.m.
Pam Hill, LPN, memory care director for The Christian Village, will
present information on the topic "Caring for Someone with Dementia.
Could This Be Me Someday?"
Lunch will be provided. Preregistration
is required, but there is no charge to attend.
This presentation is part of a series of Lunch and Learn
programs. The goal of the series is to provide practical information
that will help caregivers continue to provide quality care to others
while maintaining balance in their own lives.
Informal caregivers are unpaid individuals such as family
members, friends and neighbors who provide assistance to someone who
is to some degree incapacitated and in need of help with tasks such
as grocery shopping, bill paying, cooking or personal care.
Grandparents or other relatives raising grandchildren are those who
have accepted primary responsibility for raising one or more
children through age 18.
To register or to learn more about this program, contact the Area
Agency on Aging for Lincolnland at 217-787-9234 or 800-252-2918.
