Our agency is reimagining its wellness programs for a virtual setting as Granite Staters continue to practice social distancing amid the coronavirus pandemic. Existing programming on topics related to aging, caregiver support and education, and bereavement, have been adjusted to accommodate virtual gatherings.
Current Virtual Programming Includes:
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.
