Our agency is reimagining its wellness programs for a virtual setting as Granite Staters continue to practice social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic. New programming was developed to support families facing limited or no in-person contact with loved ones due to visitation restrictions at skilled living facilities. Existing programming on topics related to aging, caregiver support and education, and bereavement, have been adjusted to accommodate virtual gatherings.
Current Virtual Programming Includes:
The Capital Area Memory Cafe, held on the third Wednesday of each month, is a safe, supportive, and engaging environment that provides an opportunity to be with others who understand and embrace the challenges of living with memory impairment. For more information, view our calendar.
Walk-In Wednesday, held on the fourth Wednesday of each month, gives community members an opportunity to connect with a social worker/notary public to discuss topics such as advance directives, Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare and/or Living Wills, and community resources. For more information, view our calendar.
