Lunch & Learn March 18
Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland
announces program for family caregivers
The Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland 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 the Oasis Center at St. John
United Church of Christ, 204 Seventh St. in Lincoln, on Tuesday, March 18,
Christa McCarthy, career agent with Transamerica, will present "46
Decisions You Need to Know When a Loved One Dies."
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
