Upcoming Events

Future Planning and Aging Caregivers

12/19/19 6-7:30 pm or 1/24/20 12-1 pm

The Arc of Colorado and the Arc of the United States will be teaming up to provide two webinars to help aging caregivers with the future planning process by providing resources and information! Learn more about resources that will help as you start working on your future plan. Please join us on either, December the 19th from 6-7:30 pm or January 24th from 12-1 pm. Both webinars will be recorded, so you may access them at a later date, as well.

Presenters: Heidi Haines, Liz Mahar, Abigail Negley

Description: Future planning is important for all families. Thinking about the future can be challenging and emotional. However, experience shows that adults with an intellectual and/or developmental disability (I/DD) make a better transition from the family home when a future plan is in place.
