Senior Advocacy Nonprofit Launches Virtual Caregiving Series
While the pandemic has interrupted many aspects of life, it has not stopped the march of time nor the progression of diseases. “People continue to age and families continue to deal with the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and elder care issues,” says Jillian Berry, President of Lehigh Valley Aging in Place Coalition (LVAIP). “Now more than ever families need to be supported as they seek solutions to navigate the senior and elder care process.”
During a time when large gatherings of at-risk populations are discouraged, it has become more challenging to assist seniors and caregivers as they seek solutions for aging in place needs. In normal years, there are ample opportunities for family caregivers to attend a health fair or senior expo like LVAIP’s popular annual Lehigh Valley Senior Expo held at Ag Hall each spring. Despite the inability to gather in-person, the almost 100-member nonprofit, LVAIP, decided to host a virtual caregiver series this fall addressing meaningful topics to support healthy aging.
Participate in the 2021 Fall Caregiving Expo. All sessions are free and underwritten through the generosity of LVAIP members and sponsoring organizations.
