May is Older Americans Month. This month is an annual campaign to acknowledging the perennial contributions of older adults to our nation. Join us and learn from the Director of Eldercare Locator who will provide a presentation on Eldercare.gov, a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging which connects individuals to services for older adults and their families. The Eldercare Locator database is designed to link older adults and caregivers to unbiased information and assistance resources at the state and community level. By understanding the unique work-life balance needs of caregivers, as well as the abilities brought to the workplace by older Americans, we can ensure that the USDA and other workplaces are fully supportive of all employees.
What is the Administration on Aging?
The Administration on Aging (AOA) is the principal agency of the U.S Department of Health and Human Services designated to carry out the provisions of the Older Americans Act of 1965 (OAA), as amended (42 U.S.C.A. section 3001 et seq.). The OAA promotes the well-being of older individuals by providing services and programs designed to help them live independently in their homes and communities. The Act also empowers the federal government to distribute funds to the states for supportive services for individuals over the age of 60.
What is Experience Ability?
The EXPERIENCE ABILITY Classroom Training Series will be hosted once a month in the TARGET Center and streamed online to registered attendees (with captions). This training series will educate you on the value and unique perspective each employee with a disability brings to the organization, and increase your confidence in working with these individuals. Through greater awareness of our co-workers, we can better experience all abilities.
