[May 02, 2014]
In cooperation with Senior
Citizens of Logan County, the Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland
has scheduled a Lunch and Learn program Tuesday, from noon to 1
p.m., for informal caregivers of older adults and grandparents and
other relatives raising children. The program will be presented at
St. John United Church, the temporary location of the Oasis Senior
Center, at 210 Seventh St. in Lincoln.
Laura Carmody, of Home Instead Senior Care, will present "Caregivers
Need a Break Too! Learn What Respite Is and How to Access This
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.
