    • What’s New in the Aging Department
    • 2019 Annual Report
    • Aide Resume – Are you looking for rewarding work that you can do as a part time job or in addition to a job you already have?  We send out these aide resumes to hundreds of people across the county who are looking for help in their homes.
    • Home Health Aide Training – A&Y is teaming up with area Home Care Agencies and FLCC to offer training for HHA’s interested in working in Wayne county.  Often, completing this 2-week training requires a daily drive to Monroe County, but FLCC is able to offer the training in Canandaigua or Geneva with the clinical component in Newark!  Several Home Care agencies have also partnered on this project to send their new hires to training locally or to be able to hire people who are attending the training on their own.  The next class starts in February, with 3 more trainings planned for the year.  A mandatory orientation is required prior to starting the class.
    • 4-Year Plan and Needs Assessment – A&Y has submitted the 2020-2024 plan to the state for approval.  The links are to the completed needs assessment and a summary of the 4-year plan goals.

Workshops

    • Medicare 101: An introductory class for people who are new to Medicare or who may have had Medicare for a while, but never understood it.  We review what Medicare is, how someone gets Medicare, what the different options are for coverage under the Medicare program and where people can go for extra help either with costs or understanding coverage.  MEDICARE 101 IS NOW AVAILABLE ON-LINE. View the video and check out links to important Medicare information at your leisure.
    • Powerful Tools for Caregivers: A 6-week course to help caregivers sharpen their tools in communication, problem-solving and to learn tips for getting family more involved, setting boundaries, and taking care of yourself.  A must for anyone assuming a caregiving role.  2020 class schedule TBD.
    • Living Healthy: A 6-week course for individuals living with a chronic health condition and/or their caregivers.  Use your time at home to learn tools to better manage chronic conditions.  Call today to arrange a home kit to be dropped off.  A trained facilitator will call you each week to discuss the material and answer any questions. 315-946-5624.
    • Check out the current edition of our newsletter (“What’s New” link above) for other classes and events scheduled or call the office for more information on any of the offerings.

      Programs and Services

      Our agency serves as the link between seniors and the agencies that serve them. Most programs/services are offered on a contribution basis. No service is denied because of inability or unwillingness to contribute. Some programs operate on a “cost share” basis, where the client pays a portion of the cost according to his/her income.

      Funding for these programs is provided by Wayne County, the New York State Office for the Aging, the Federal Older Americans Act, and private contributions.
