Later this week, Freeman Health System will hold its monthly Caregiver Support Group. KRPS’s Fred Fletcher-Fierro has more.
The Area Agency on Aging offers more than meals at area senior citizen centers, and all those services will be at the heart of the Freeman Caregiver Support Group meeting this month.
Besides operating several senior centers that provide nutritious meals, recreation, and health and wellness information, the Area Agency on Aging also has an ombudsman program that includes information about choosing a care facility and services for caregivers. Charlotte Foust with the Area Agency will share information on these and other programs provided and Medicare Counseling available at the agency.
Facilitated by Ozark Center Assistant Director of Adult Outpatient Services Jennifer Berry, the Freeman Caregiver Support Group meets from 10:30 am to 12:00 pm Thursday, August 25. Refreshments and door prizes are provided. The meeting will be held at the Area Agency on Aging, Region X, office at 531 E. 15th Street in Joplin. Call 417 347 8463 for more information.
