People puzzling over over how to care for elderly loved ones can get an overview of options during a program Monday evening, Jan. 23, at the Fairfield Woods Branch Library.
"Eldercare: Where Do I Start" is planned at 6:30 p.m. in downUnder Teen area of the library, 1147 Fairfield Woods Road. The program is free and open to the public and will be conducted by an expert in elder healthcare.
The complexities and fragmentation of eldercare services, housing and insurance can be overwhelming, the library said in a news release. The program aims to provide answers to common questions, outline where help is available and provide tips for communicating with older adults and family members.
The program will be conducted by Barbara W. Abraham, a registered nurse and health educator with over 30 years of experience working with older adults and families, the library said. She is a certified instructor for LiveWell, a health promotion program for older adults in Connecticut, the library said. She operates an eldercare consulting business in Trumbull.
