When it comes to the seniors in your life, do you know what their needs and preferences are? If not, it's the perfect time to start the conversation. The California Department of Aging has provided an extensive resource guide connecting older adults, adults with disabilities, and family caregivers with various resources across the state. From health insurance counseling to caregiver support and information on elder abuse, the Aging Resource Guide has it all.  Visit and discover the support you need. Because together, we can ensure every older adult in California gets the help they deserve.


Imagine a space where a diagnosis like Parkinson's is no longer a limitation. At Invertigo Theatre's "Dancing Through Parkinson's" they encourage all to dance in whatever way they can. This special program is for anyone with neurodegenerative, mobility, or age-related conditions. In this safe space, participants enjoy an hour of dance instruction from big-hearted and highly-trained Teaching Artists. The class is free and family members and caregivers are welcome too!

Note: While this program can't cure the disease, what they can do is promote physical health, mental health, and joyful community interaction. Some attendees have found it to improve their physical stability, balance, creativity, mental clarity, and overall well-being.

This is space is pure joy, and those onsite will gladly let you know how they feel about it. For some, it was a place to connect after a hardship. For others, it's a way to stay active.
