Join Generations United and n4a for a conversation on how the Aging Network can best support older adults raising grandchildren or other young relatives during this tumultuous time. The needs of grandfamilies are often great and always complicated even in good times. Add online learning, stay-at-home precautions and reduced access to services and supplies, and you have a population in need of extra help, now! Generations United’s experts will highlight the trends in these families’ current and emerging needs and share ideas for aging organizations to increase support to these older adults. A grandparent currently raising her grandchildren will share first-hand experience, and other grandfamily and AAA experts will join the conversation—as will you! In this COVID-19 era, sharing of emerging practices is critical, and we hope to capture local responses during the webinar.

Speakers to be announced.
