Send a link to a friend
[October 20, 2012]
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.
It will be at the Oasis Senior Center, 501 Pulaski St. in Lincoln,
on Nov. 6 from noon to 1 p.m.
Jamie Freschi, regional long-term care ombudsman, will present
information regarding "Residents' Rights in Long-Term Care
Lunch will be provided, and preregistration is
required. 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 those unpaid people 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.
