Most older adults and people with disabilities want to remain in their own home. Knowing about available resources in the community and how to access them is one of the best things that people can do for their loved ones.
Making the Link 2012 offers the opportunity for the individuals and families to learn about a wide range of local service, providers and programs in Pierce County. Services include in-home care, assisted and skilled nursing facilities, elder law, equipment providers, health care insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, caregiving, emergency assistance, social service agencies, funeral services and much more.
Making the Link 2012 will be held at the Landmark Convention Center, 47 St. Helens Avenue in Tacoma on Wednesday, Oct. 24 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is a free, drop-in event and no RSVP is required.
The target audiences for Making the Link 2012 include health care providers and office staff, social service professionals, faith community staff and volunteers as well as the public at large.
Participants will receive an annual compendium of assisted living and skilled nursing facilities in the area, copies of the 2012-2013 edition of Senior Media Service's popular "Where To Turn" resource guide and other resource information.
The event is sponsored by Pierce County Aging and Disability Resources in collaboration with the Health Care Providers Council of Pierce County.
