To support the growing number of adult caretakers in our community, Berks Encore maintains a spirit of continuous education on the most important issues. In the past, this would have included a variety of guidance and counseling sessions, on-site education seminars and informative evening classes. During the pandemic we have had to eliminate some programs, move to computer or telephone counseling and will hold zoom meetings for other topics. Through everything we do, we always strive to assist and support all aging members of our community in a personal and professional way.
We can provide support and guidance for individuals who are working and find themselves as the primary caregiver for an aging adult. Berks Encore Care+ Aging Life Care Managers can provide assistance by creating a personalized plan to help navigate the array of senior services. The care managers from Berks Encore Care+ are available by calling 484-577-4243 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
