Join Action for Older Persons at YHPL on Tuesday December 18 from 3:00pm to 4:00pm for this hands-on Training Program that will help you be more empathetic and understanding when assisting aging persons. We’ll review the 5 senses and how they change as we age. It makes sense that the more aware you are of what the person may be experiencing, the more effective you may become in relating to the person.
