Caring for Aging Arkansas
We all age. If we’re lucky, someone will be there with us, allowing us to do so in dignity and with as much independence as possible.
When a loved one becomes a senior, it’s our turn to care for them. Taking care of an elderly loved one in your home comes with many responsibilities, but when your family member is able to remain at home instead of in a long-term care facility, the benefits are just as numerous.
Aging with The 5A
The Arkansas Association of Area Agencies on Aging (5A) provides services and resources for the aging residents of Arkansas and their caretakers. One aspect of those services is to provide you with all the tools you need to successfully take on a caregiving role.
