NEWTON, NJ – The Unites Way Caregivers Coalition is giving a Caregiver Education Program on March 12.

This informative program presented by Rebecca K. Abenante, MA, MSW, LSW, ASW-G, Healthy Aging Coordinator with Morristown Medical Center, according to Town of Newton officials.

 Attendees will be able to learn about how aging-in-place involves being able to remain in the home of one’s choice, even as needs change.   The decision to stay at home requires advanced planning and not all seniors have a plan in place.
