Puyallup center hosts workshop on resources, services

A free information-only workshop about services and resources in Pierce County for older adults and people with disabilities will be held Nov. 18 at the Puyallup Activity Center.
From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., topics will include in-home care, geriatric care management, elder law, adult family homes, assisted living, skilled nursing homes, memory care, Medicare, Medicaid and community resources, said a spokesman for Pierce County Community Connections Aging and Disability Resources. The county agency is co-sponsoring the event with Health Care Providers Council of Pierce County.
The center is located at 210 W. Pioneer in Puyallup.
“Life is fragile,” said Aaron Van Valkenburg, manager of Aging and Disability Resources. “For some people, even the youngest and healthiest, life can change in a blink with an accident or illness. For others, the gradual onset of disabilities may lead to need for extended care. In either case, knowing about community resources and how to tap into them is crucial.”
