[September 05, 2007]
SPRINGFIELD -- The Area
Agency on Aging for Lincolnland has announced the September, October
and November topics in the monthly "Lunch and Learn" series for
family caregivers of older adults and for relatives raising
children. Lunch and Learn sessions are free to the public and are
scheduled during the noon hour to accommodate working caregivers.
Lunch is provided, and preregistration is required.
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 helpers 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 have accepted primary
responsibility for raising one or more children through age 18.
