Aging Services extends hand to area nonprofits and other organizations

Tuesday, November 27, 2018

CAPCOG’s Aging Services is conducting a second Your Partner workshop after the initial workshop was highly attended. The workshop is a comprehensive overview of the Area Agency on Aging and the Aging and Disability Resource Center of the Capital Area services, so care managers and helping professionals can be better informed about resources for older adults, persons with disabilities and their caregivers. The second Your Partner workshop is scheduled for 9 a.m., Jan. 11, 2019 at CAPCOG, 6800 Burleson Road, Building 310, Suite 165 in Austin.

“It is wonderful to partner with so many folks from our region that perform a variety of tasks,” said Aging Services Assistant Director Siena Lindemann about the more than 45 people in attendance at the first workshop in October. “It takes a lot of us as a community to support older adults and those with disabilities. This workshop lets them see how our piece of the puzzle fits into what they do.”

During the workshop, each program in the division discusses its services and specific avenues for referral and access; some program areas include health and wellness, care coordination, housing navigation, ombudsman, and informational referral. Workshop attendees also get a chance to ask questions about how their organizations can interact and benefit from the services. The workshop also lets attendees network with professionals in similar fields.
