Caregivers Invited to Join in University, City Aging Study

Boise State University’s Center for the Study of Aging (CSA), in partnership with the City of Boise, is conducting an age-friendly assessment of the community.

The project, based on a model developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), will provide the City of Boise with action-focused findings from older adults, caregivers of older adults and organizations that provide services to older adults in Boise. The goal is to gather information about the positive and negative experiences of actively aging in Boise

If you are a caregiver or are lending assistance to an older adult residing in the City of Boise, you are invited to participate in a focus group to discuss aspects of aging, from the perspective of a caregiver in Boise. The discussion will address gaps or barriers in the areas of transportation, housing, social and civic engagement, communication and information, and community and health services.

The focus group will begin at 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 5, on the Boise State campus in the Health Science Riverside building, Room 106.

Please respond to Tami Cirerol or leave a message at 208-426-5889 by Friday, Feb. 27, if you are interested in participating in this initiative.
