I
n response to the increasing number of aging individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities who have a high probability of being impacted by the early onset of dementia and/or other complex age-related health and medical issues, Cape Abilities, through a generous grant from the Cape and Islands United Way, is launching a Healthy Aging Initiative.

Supports provided through this initiative will supplement current services in both the Life Skills Day Habilitation and Residential programs and provide resources for family members and other caregivers who support these individuals as they age.

As part of this initiative, a series of training sessions will be offered.
These are open to families, caregivers and other community members
who have an interest in learning about supports for this population.

For more information, please contact Michelle Savini, RN

msavini@capeabilities.org or 508-778-5040.
