Zoe Bracci, Pennsylvania Link to Aging and Disability Resources Lancaster County partner was the keynote speaker at last night’s WITF sponsored event, Caring for Mom and Dad, at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center Sharadin Bigler Theatre.
Zoe is the director of Moravian Center Adult Day, a downtown Lancaster facility which “provides a safe, warm and welcoming setting for your Mom, Dad, or other loved ones to spend their day.”
WITF hosted the event series devoted to providing information for caregivers and is hosting two more – one in York and one in Carlisle.
“Being a good caregiver also means taking care of yourself. In honor of Mother’s and Father’s Day, WITF’s Transforming Health aims to connect audiences to local caregiving resources here in Central Pennsylvania and will hold a series for caregiving workshops with information, professional advice, and opportunities to engage. Join us this Spring as we present sessions across the region. These events are free and open to the public.
“Each event will open with a screening of select clips from the documentary PBS documentary Caring for Mom & Dad followed by a special Keynote Address by local caregivers and experts. The Keynote Address will be followed by two breakout sessions. Attendees can attend both sessions to connect with local caregiving expertise and resources.”
“Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC) are a nationwide effort to take a seamless approach in the way we assist seniors and adults with disabilities who need help with activities of daily living. The ADRC in Pennsylvania is known as the Link.”
