two elderly women on a beachIt is essential that every Hoosier, and certainly our library personnel, have a good working knowledge of the resources available to make caregivers’ lives easier. This webinar provides vital information on community resources such as CICOA (Central Indiana Council on Aging) and the other members of the Indiana Association of Area Agencies on Aging (a vast network for information, referral, and specific kinds of services designed to improve quality of life and sustain the greatest possible independence for elderly persons, people with a disability and their family caregivers). Informed family caregivers are the backbone of successful care, and library personnel are in a key position to steer patrons to the information they need.
