"Future is Now" provides informatin on promising practices for professionals supporting older caregivers and family members with developmental disabilities. Join colleagues in the fields of Aging and DD who have spent the last five years developing practical ways to “cross-walk” systems to better support senior caregivers of people with developmental disabilities. Learn about the Future is Now curriculum adapted for these families to foster focused planning discussions. These conversations are critical to ensuring families intentions are voiced and captured. You’ll also hear from facilitators who further adapted the series for younger families. Finally, we’ll discuss what outreach efforts work best to engage all families in important conversations.
