The Summer 2017 Yarmouth Aging in Place newsletter has recently been published. You may click here to read it.
An updated version of the YCAN tri-fold brochure has been printed, and is now available at Town Hall and Merrill Library (and elsewhere as well). A PDF of the brochure is available for download by clicking here.
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.
Together With Alzheimer’s Support Group
New and “seasoned” caregivers
