Indiana’s aging population continues to grow. From ensuring all have options to age in their own homes and communities, to supporting family caregivers, to protecting vulnerable adults from abuse, neglect and exploitation, there are many competing needs and priorities.
The 2019-2022 Indiana State Plan on Aging seeks to balance and support these priorities and others. The Plan is now out in draft form so that anyone may offer their ideas and input about the state’s proposals. The Plan is available here: bit.ly/INAgingPlan2018.
The Indiana Division of Aging wants to give everyone a chance to Engage at Every Age (May’s Older American’s Month theme), be involved and share their experiences. To accommodate as many people as possible, the Division of Aging is hosting three regional events including an online option:
When: Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 9:30 am – 12 Noon
Where: Noblesville Nazarene Church, 1391 Greenfield Avenue, Noblesville, IN 46060
How: RSVP for lunch sponsored by AARP Indiana at 317.674.8777
Who: Sponsored by AARP, Senior Medicare Patrol, Shepherd’s Center of Hamilton County and the Indiana Secretary of State’s Office. Emcee Chuck Lofton, WTHR Meteorologist.
Why: An important component of financial fitness is fraud prevention. This program, one of the many free financial education events as part of national Money Smart Week, will help you and your loved ones avoid becoming a victim of all types of fraud—consumer, investment and health care fraud. The Chicago Federal Reserve Bank started Money Smart Week more than 10 years ago, and now, financial institutions, government agencies, non-profits, libraries and schools all join forces to raise awareness about financial education and provide resources for the public at large.
