[September 13, 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 for grandparents and other relatives raising children. It will be at noon Sept. 25 at the Oasis Senior Center, 501 Pulaski St. in Lincoln.

Barbara Greenwood, of VRI -- with the motto "Be safe. Live well." -- will present "Minimizing the Risk of Falls in the Home by Implementing Simple Changes."

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 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.
