Registration Now Open: A Support Group For Aging Caregivers On Creating A Letter Of Intent

Did you know that there are 600,00-700,00 families in the United States in which an adult with an intellectual or developmental disability is living with aging family members and there is no plan for the individual’s future?

The Arc of Massachusetts is pleased to offer a 3-week, 6 session future planning support group to older caregivers in Western, MA who are caring for a loved one with an intellectual or developmental disability. The focus of the group will be on creating a letter of intent.

A letter of intent is a non-legal document that contains important information about the individual with a disability, their family and their desires for the future. Come learn about future planning and create your letter of intent in a supportive group environment.

The group will be led by The Arc of Massachusetts graduate social work intern Robbie Rubet who recently completed a future planning training led by The Arc of the United States, The Arc of Massachusetts and The Institute on Disability and Human Development at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Attendance is limited so don’t miss this wonderful opportunity.

Dates: July 29 & 31 and August 5, 7, 12 & 14
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Place: The South Hadley Public Library (Trustees Room)
2 Canal Street
