What people are saying about us: Agency on Aging was a tremendous help

As seen in the: masthead-logo.gif

Dear Editor,

Recently a family member was diagnosed with dementia. Not knowing where to turn or what to do, someone told me about the Area Agency On Aging.

They sent out a book to read that is very helpful on what to expect and things to do and not to do. They then were kind enough to get us in touch with a place to help dispense medicine to make it a little easier. We then needed to get her assessed as to whether she was able to stay where she was or needed assisted living. Again, they came through for us.

I don't know how many people know about this place, but I am telling you, if you need any kind of assistance or just want to ask questions, they will do their best to help get you to the right place.

We are very thankful they are around and can't thank them enough.
