Please join us for this free presentation for caregivers, offered by the Broome County Office for Aging.  

Helping someone stay active and engaged can be challenging.  Health problems, mobility issues, and cognitive changes can all be factors that cause people to withdraw from friends, family and activities that they once enjoyed.  It takes effort to stay connected but it's worth it - studies show that people with strong ties to others are healthiest.  This presentation includes research that shows how soical supports can affect health, as well as tips for keeping people socially connected. Please call the Office for Aging to reserve your seat: 778-2411.
