About the Program
Today, more and more professionals are finding themselves assisting older adults.  The older adult children are not always available to assist professionals with the older adult needing help as they may be working, raising children and managing their own life responsibilities.  Whether you are concerned about an older adult’s well-being or you have already determined that your older adult client needs some assistance, this workshop will define elder care, introduce you to the key resources available to your client as well as provide tips on encouraging your client to utilize resources and accept help.
