As you age, there are times when you’re looking for a program or a specialist to aid in the care of a disabled loved one or yourself.
Fortunately, there is a source for that type of information that’s as close as the Detroit Area Agency on Aging’s “Senior Solution Resource Guide for Seniors and Caregivers.”
Information contained in the free, 82-page guide offers options for long term care, where to find help for the hearing impaired and deaf, where to find someone to help with chores around the house … where seniors can participate in Congregate Meals programs, and where family members who will be caring for loved ones can find training workshops and/or seminars.
The D-AAA Senior Solutions guide also helps caregivers with tips on the do’s and don’t's of caregiving and danger signs to watch for such as depression and the how and why of accepting help when offered. Information also offered on hospice, housing and where to report elder abuse.
