What services and supports do caregivers and families need? Family Caregiving Tele-Town Hall February 26, 2015
Here is a chance for families within the developmental disability community to elevate their issues within the the broader aging conversation. If you want the White House Conference on Aging to address aging caregivers with family members with I/DD then they need to hear from you.
Guest speakers will include Ms. Super, Alliance President/CEO Gail Gibson Hunt, and Caregiver Action Network CEO John Schall.
The organizers are taking questions and comments in four areas of focus: healthy aging, long-term services and supports, retirement security, and elder justice.
