Access to regular meals can sometimes be a challenge for some elders. For those of you in California, you may not know the state works with local Area Agencies on Aging to offer the Congregate Meals Program and the Home-Delivered Meals Program.
Those over 60 years old may be eligible for these food programs, as well as nutrition screening services.
You can find out about what is offered in your county, by visiting or calling the Area Agency on Aging for your county.
Have a great idea designed to benefit and uplift our aging community?
You still have some time (a little over a week) to submit an application for the AARP Community Improvement Projects.
Here’s part of the project description: The AARP Community Challenge’s focus on tangible projects, community engagement and its quick-action timeline helps selected grantees fast-track ideas and replicate promising practices. Previous projects have demonstrated an ability to garner additional funds or support from public and private funders, encourage innovation, overcome local policy barriers, and receive greater overall awareness and engagement.
And if you haven’t done so, KIRC encourages you to get an AARP membership! You don’t have to wait until you’re 55 to take advantage of all the information, resources and planning tools, many of which are FREE!
Need a roadmap of steps to take NOW to plan for the years ahead? Remember, you don’t have to wait until you or a loved one is older to begin thinking about and preparing for aging.
Keeping it REAL Caregiving invites you to join us in lending support to the people of Ukraine under the assault of the Russian invasion. I would love to hit a goal of $5-thousand dollars from our KIRC family alone. Will you chip in??
