A Resource Guide for Seniors and their Families
HOW TO USE OUR RESOURCE GUIDES
Whether you are anticipating the future or coping with a crisis now, InnovAGING’s Senior Resource Guides can help you discover the help you need to take responsibility for challenges you might encounter as a senior, or as someone who is caring for an older person.
Our guides are a way for families to discover topics about which they can create meaningful dialogue. Getting older is a process in which every living person is engaged–it is a family and community matter–between spouses, partners, siblings, and the generations.
