Elder Care Initiative

strives to provide education and awareness about preparing for our senior years. The African American community is least prepared when it comes to retirement, estate planning, and understanding the legal and financial preparation needed to care for parents, grandparents, and ultimately for our own long-term care. It is a comprehensive program which also focuses on elder abuse, awareness, financial peace, support for the caregiver, and volunteerism at senior care facilities.
