Caring for Older Adults

Helping an older family member or close friend is an important role. This free class will provide actionable steps that you – informal caregivers, family members, and friends – can take to limit risks for the older adult(s) in your life. The information provided is beneficial for those who help daily, and for those who may only help an older adult occasionally.

We are attempting to gauge interest in this class so we can plan to make it available in the future. Please sign up below if you would like to be included on the email list should this class become available.
