[April 04, 2014]  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. The session will be at St. John United Church, the temporary location of the Oasis Senior Center, at 210 Seventh St. in Lincoln, on April 15 from noon to 1 p.m.

Christa McCarthy, a Transamerica agent, will present "46 Decisions You Need to Know When a Loved One Dies."

There is no charge to attend. Preregistration is required and lunch will be provided.

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 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.
