Welcome to Community Education!
Your starting point to explore how you can best assist an aging parent.
If you are responsible for the care of an aging parent or relative, consider enrolling in one of our community classes. Learn about how to open dialogues with siblings and older parents about challenging and sensitive issues. Find out about community resources that will help support your care giving. Bring your tough questions and we will do our very best to help support you, the caregiver.
"Thanks so much for all of your wonderful help in getting my 87-year-old mother's life back on track.
Your services were not only highly professional but also compassionate. Your knowledge of the aging service network in the Rochester area helped us tremendously since all of my mother's children live so far away from the area.
You cut through hours of work it would have taken us to find suitable placements and services. I have seen a smile on my mother's face that I have not seen for years!"
