Eldercare series at Central, Lewisville offers tips, resources for those caring for older adults

The Geriatric Adult Specialty Team (GAST) of Partners Health Management is presenting a series of eldercare seminars at two Forsyth County Library branches to help navigate the many challenges facing older adults and their caregivers and familes.
