America Is Running Out of Family Caregivers, Just When It Needs Them Most

With Hurricane Florence expected to impact Virginia later this week, there is no better time to get prepared. The Virginia Department of Emergency Management has issued some helpful tips for assisting older adults and people with disabilities, as they may need special supplies beyond the basic supplies. VDEM has also included an Emergency Supply List that you can print and check off to make sure you are prepared for all emergencies that can occur.

Age-friendly describes a movement to make communities more welcoming and livable for older residents and people of all ages. The term also describes efforts to create places where people can grow up and grow old together. In 2018, the Arlington County Commission on Aging (CoA) identified key areas of focus, known as “domains of livability,” to make Arlington, VA more age-friendly.

Tune in this Tuesday, August 3 at 2:00 pm on WERA Arlington 96.7 FM, join host Cheryl Beversdorf for a conversation with Linda Kelleher, Chair, Arlington CoA, and Cynthia Davis, Chair, Arlington Age Friendly Task Force, about the needs of aging Arlington residents and what domains of livability are required to create an age friendly community.
