EMPOWER FOR ELDERS OPENS 9/5

On September 5, Empower for Elders will open at 8962 Porter Rd. in the Town of Niagara.  Recognizing that more services are needed for older adults and their caregivers, Empower developed this program which will provide meaningful day activities and assistance with personal care to older adults.

The program will operate Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.  Breakfast, lunch and a snack will be included.  Participants can socialize with peers and take part in activities that promote independence and feelings of self-worth.  Assistance with personal care will also be provided to those that need it.

In addition, Empower for Elders offers support to caregivers, giving them respite during the day while their loved one attends the program and support group meetings where they can meet and talk with others who share their experience of caring for an older adult.

Please stop by the ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, September 8 at 1 pm.
