[October 12, 2016]  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 grandparents and other relatives raising children. It will be held at the Oasis Senior Center, 2810 Woodlawn Road, Lincoln, on Wednesday, October 19, 2016, from  noon to 1:00 p.m.

Catherine Spannagel, Caregiver Specialist, HSHS St. John’s Hospital Third Age Living, will present “What Can a Caregiver Specialist Do for You?”

Lunch will be provided and pre-registration is required. While there is no charge to attend,
voluntary contribitions are accepted. All donations received are used to provide additional  services for caregivers.

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 live.

Informal caregivers are those unpaid persons 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.
