bceldersguide"The purpose of the Guide is to make sure that Elders, their families, and caregivers have access to information about the programs, services, and resources they need. Elders play a pivotal role in the health and wellness of our communities. Elders are sought out for guidance and advice. Today, it is more important than ever that Elders are supported to live long and healthy lives and to provide guidance and support for the next generation.È
