Let’s Celebrate!

The Yarmouth Aging in Place project is celebrating our accomplishments with an Ice Cream Social and you are invited.  You’ll get a chance to meet some of our wonderful volunteers, learn more about the project, and have some yummy ice cream besides.  (We do know that the Rowe School ice cream social is the night before so you have two chances to celebrate the coming of summer).

Alzheimer’s Support Calendar

Yarmouth Cares About Neighbors supports the “Aging In Place” initiative in Yarmouth, led by Leigh Kirchner with support from a large group of volunteers. They received a block grant to conduct a survey of needs in Yarmouth, and used the survey results to develop a preliminary plan for services that was recently presented to our Town Council.

The following meeting calendar for a local Alzheimer’s support group is an example of a service that is becoming increasingly needed in our community as more and more of us are helping to care for an aging friend or relative.
