[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 Service."

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.

To register or to learn about this program, contact the Area Agency on Aging for Lincolnland at 217-787-9234 or 800-252-2918.
