St. Paul’s of Ellicottville in conjunction with the Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging / NY Connects is pleased to invite you to a Community Forum on Saturday, March 25, 2017 beginning at 10am at St. Paul’s in Ellicottville.

The topic “Effective Communication Strategies” will be presented by the Alzheimer’s Association. We are so pleased the County has agreed to offer this very informative program to the public through funding made available by the New York State Department of Health. Department of Aging staff will also present on the topic of Self Care for the Caregiver, the Conversation Project and the Western New York Alzheimer’s Caregiver Partnership.

This is a free outreach event to the community and may be of benefit to anyone who is functioning in a caregiving capacity regardless of diagnosis. Representatives will be available to demonstrate the NY Connects Resource Directory and speak about local Department of the Aging and NY Connects Services. NY Connects provides Cattaraugus County residents free, easy and local access to information and assistance for you and your family who are exploring available options for long term care ... regardless of age or income. Representatives will also be able to answer questions and provide information on a variety of programs that are available through our local Department of the Aging.

We look forward to seeing you on March 25th at 10am. For any questions please contact St. Paul’s at 716-699-2265 or Katie Ambuski at the Dept. of Aging 716-373-8032.
