“How to hire in-home services” subject of February Seniors Count-Nashua workshop
NASHUA – Staying independent as long as possible is a goal for most adults. As individuals age, remaining at homes becomes more difficult, and assistance with certain activities is often needed. Many resources exist to provide a variety of in-home care services.
How to locate these services and determine which type of care is best for your family’s situation is the subject of the February Seniors Count-Nashua workshop. Offering information on the types of care available, who provides these services and the questions you should ask a potential care provider will be workshop presenters, Lynn Eaton of ServiceLink and Bruce Angus from the Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services.
The workshop is scheduled for Monday, February 10, 2014 at the Nashua Senior Activity Center, 70 Temple Street. It begins at 1:00pm.
Advance registration for the workshop is requested. Please call Beth Todgham, Seniors Count-Nashua facilitator for Southern New Hampshire Services at (603) 889-3440 x 132 for more information.
In case of wintery weather, the Senior Activity Center follows the Nashua schools closing schedule. The workshop will be rescheduled if schools are closed or there is a delayed opening on February 10.
