You are Invited to a Special Event
You are invited to an upcoming award ceremony for the Riverside Center for Excellence in Aging and Lifelong Health (CEALH).
The Virginia Commissioner for Aging and Rehabilitative Services will be presenting Riverside CEALH the 2013 "Best Practice" award for its "Caring For You, Caring For Me" program.
Virginia caregivers provide 1.13 million hours of care per year at a value of $11.7 billion to the Commonwealth. Caregivers involved in these types of programs save the healthcare system nationwide an estimated $450 billion annually by keeping older adults in their homes and out of emergency rooms, among other benefits. Over the four years that the "Caring For You, Caring For Me" program has been operational, it has helped more than 5,000 older adults and caregivers across Virginia.
