The Summer 2017 Yarmouth Aging in Place newsletter has recently been published. You may click here to read it.
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
are welcome to these free sessions.
