Resources for people who serve as unpaid caregivers for family members are the topic of a presentation at the Clark County Commission on Aging. The meeting, at 4:30pm March 21 in the sixth-floor hearing room of the Public Service Center, 1300 Franklin St., is open to the public. Attendees will hear about programs that can make caregiving easier while respecting a family member's independence and dignity.
Speaker will be Lexie Bartunek, Community Services Program coordinator with the Area Agency on Aging and Disabilities of Southwest Washington.
The March 21 discussion is the first of nine meetings this year to focus on supportive services, especially for people 50 and older. Research shows 87% of people prefer to retire in place and will need a variety of services to remain in their home as long as possible.
