Full Program Description 
The Association on Aging in New York encourages staff who oversee and provide Caregiving and/or NY Connects services, as well as those in the KinCare Coalition Network, to attend the Spring 2018 Regional Caregiver Forums, “Caregiving and Respite Across the Lifespan: Linkages and Partnerships”. Not only will you learn to strengthen your network of partners, but also you will have the opportunity to share issues, needs, and ideas on behalf of caregivers you help serve during afternoon listening sessions.
