“I want to stay at home! What do I need to do?” (HYBRID)

Wednesday, February 22 at 10:00 a.m.

Planning ahead is hard because one never knows how their needs might change. The first step is to think about the kinds of help one might want in the near future. Maybe you live alone, so there is no one living in your home who is available to help you. Maybe you don’t need help right now, but you live with a spouse or family member who does. Everyone has a different situation.

This program, led by Stacey Cullen, Caregiver and Support Services Coordinator at BACC, will discuss options according to the National Institute on Aging.

This program will take place in-person at CPL and via Zoom. Please register at this link if you would like to receive a Zoom link.
