Grow your knowledge at CareWell Services Southwest

By Cassandra Lucas-Moore

Dementia, Medicare, nutrition, fall prevention. What do all of these things have in common? Older adults and caregivers can learn about them through educational opportunities provided by CareWell Services! 

CareWell Services Southwest, the Region 3B Area Agency on Aging, is your resource for information on a number of topics. A majority of CareWell’s educational opportunities are available to the public at no charge. Our knowledgeable staff is available to present any of these topics at a variety of locations including libraries, churches, township halls, public meeting rooms, provider offices, or employer staff meetings.
