Seniors need to know about services in our community that can help them. According to a new United States of Aging survey, 41% of low and moderate-income older adults are unaware of all the benefits and programs that could help them age well. What’s more, 1 in 5 of these seniors is one major financial event away from a fiscal crisis.

This free presentation is open to the public to help learn about the various types of caregiving services in our community. As well as tips on how to choose a service provider, what to look for, questions to ask, etc.

Please contact Kathy Ford at 262-605-6646 or 1-800-472-8008 with any questions.
