New Caregivers Webinar: Family Caregiving 101

Are you a new caregiver? Are you not sure what a caregiver even is? Whether you have been “looking out” for mom for several years, or if dad just moved in with you, AGE’s Family Caregiving 101 seminar can help. Presented by AGE’s own Annette Juba LCSW and Bruce Kravitz, we put this together with Alliance Work Partners to orient new family caregivers to issues they may encounter while they care for their older loved one.

Its about an hour long, and totally free! Check out the link below:

Our 2010 Committment to You: From Executive Director Joyce Lauck

The beginning of 2010 is a great time to reflect on the past decade. We at AGE are proud to look back at the work accomplished- the thousands of seniors and caregivers helped and supported and new programs established in our community.

More importantly – we look forward to this next decade and what we will strive to accomplish. In a time when many non profits are facing cuts to programs AGE is committed to deepening our programs, expanding to help new clients and meeting challenges with creative solutions. The need is growing and we can not afford to slow down just as more people need our services.

As a commitment to you and the Central Texas Community I want to share our 2010 goals with you and thank those who have helped us.

• Bring on an established specialist as Deputy Director to ensure we create stronger services for our current and future clients.
• Commit that any senior or caregiver who calls is able to share their story and receive the information, support and guidance they need to meet the challenges of aging and caregiving.
• Strengthen our partnerships with other agencies to ensure that the needs of every client are met.
• Expand services in Williamson County by 20% to meet the overwhelming community demand, by upgrading to a larger facility in Spring 2010.
• Show caregivers the tools they need to give the highest quality of care to their vulnerable loved ones.

Thank you for standing with us to making a difference in lives of older adults throughout central Texas.

Help us show appreciation to our strongest supporters in 2009 as listed below.
Without the support of the Community we would be unable to grow and meet the challenges of aging.

Best Wishes in the New Year

Joyce Lauck
Executive Director
