ARDC to strengthen long-term care, support connections

Thursday, July 19, 2018

CAPCOG and its Aging and Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of the Capital Area will hold a second annual Advocacy Day & Resource Fair to support the ADRC Steering Committee partners from 8:30 a.m. to noon, Wednesday, Aug. 15 at Common’s Learning Center, JJ Pickle Research Center, 10100 Burnet Road in Austin. Advocacy Day is a combined training, meeting, and partner recognition event that works to build the capacity of the long-term care and support network for services to older adults and individuals with disabilities.

Event speakers will discuss Advocacy Day’s theme, “Compassion Fatigue, Help for the Helper”, and attending organizations will have time to network. “Advocacy Day is a forum where we can share information about our resources for individuals and receive a better understanding what connections to make for the individual so their needs are best met,” said Vivian Harris, CAPCOG ADRC Coordinator and Lead Navigator.

ADRC steering committee member organizations — nonprofits, government services organizations and community stakeholders — are invited to participate.
