Senior Seminars Coming to Dutchess County
If you find yourself a part of the Sandwich Generation, those who are raising their children while also taking care of an aging parent, you know how hard this can be. The challenges are many, the choices are hard, and your stress level can go through the roof. You may find yourself researching colleges while, at the same time, trying to figure out how Medicare/Medicaid works.
It’s not easy and often times getting information can be a very frustrating process. But, there is help on the way for you as well as for area seniors. The Dutchess County Office of the Aging will present a series of Senior Seminars on Thursday, November 2 at the New Hackensack Reformed Church on 376, just south of the Dutchess County Airport.
This event has grown in popularity in recent years to the point that space and parking limitations require that if you want to attend, you’ll need to pre-register. There are 9 seminars on the schedule for this year covering a wide range of topics such as Senior-Friendly Homes, Elder Abuse Awareness, Foster Grandparenting, Seniors and Driving, How to Spot the Scam, and more.
These seminars fill up quickly so don't wait, call 845-486-255 to pre-register. You just might get some answers to your questions and get the help you’ve been waiting for. You’ll not only be able to take better care of the people in your life, but you'll reduce your stress as well.
The Office of the Aging is also looking for volunteers to assist seniors with parking and refreshments. Get in touch with Office for the Aging outreach coordinator Brian Jones to find out more, at (845) 486-2555.
