Caring Matters

The 14-part Caring Matters video series addresses key aspects of providing long-term care for an older adult. Caring Matters was made possible through financial support from Community Connections, a project of Carol Woods Retirement Community that is funded by The Duke Endowment. You can listen to new episodes of Aging Matters with Guiding Lights' Director Nicole Bruno at 7 pm on 680 WPTF, or listen anytime to past episodes.
