"Caring for your pet as you age" topic of Seniors Count workshop
NASHUA – As we get older, caring for a beloved pet can become more difficult as physical changes affect our ability to take our pet for a walk or lean over to clean a litter box.
The November Senior Count workshop, scheduled for Monday, November 10 will offer tips and strategies to make caregiving easier on you so you can enjoy the companionship of your furry best friend.
Presented by Christine Schlupf, DVM, Director of Veterinary Services for the Humane Society for Greater Nashua, the workshop will feature examples of products available that make tasks easier. The discussion will be an open dialogue to generate resources and ideas in order to make the physical aspect of caring for a pet easier so you can maintain and enjoy the companionship of your pet.
The free workshop will be held at the Nashua Senior Activity Center, 70 Temple St. at 1:00pm. Senior Center membership is not required to attend.
Advance registration for the workshop is strongly suggested. Please call Beth Todgham, Seniors Count-Nashua facilitator at (603) 889-3440 x 132 for more information.
