Oasis to host Lunch and Learn on Tuesday
Send a link to a friend
[September 12, 2013]
In cooperation with Senior
Citizens of Logan County, the Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland
has scheduled a Lunch and Learn program on Tuesday for informal
caregivers of older adults and for grandparents and other relatives
raising children. The program will be from noon to 1 p.m. at the
temporary location of the Oasis Senior Center, St. John United
Church at 210 Seventh St. in Lincoln.
Beth Monnat, benefits specialist for the Area Agency on Aging for
Lincolnland, will present "Durable Medical Equipment: Medicare
Coverage and Fraud Schemes."
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.
