Programs For Seniors
Asthma in the Older Adult Toolkit & Workshops
AAFA MD-Greater DC Chapter offers a special 2.5 hour program for caregivers of seniors who suffer from one or all of the following chronic diseases: asthma, allergies and COPD. Diagnosing and treatment of these diseases among seniors is often complicated because the existence of other medical conditions and the special needs of the elderly, oftentimes make it challenging for caregivers.
This workshop is appropriate for:
- Health Professionals
- Senior Center staff
- Assisted Living Center staff
- Caregivers and
- Family Members
Creation of the Toolkit and workshop materials was funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through a grant provided by the Maryland Asthma Coalition.
