This episode explores disability resources for both older adults and adults with disabilities, as well as those who care for them.  Joining Host Anne Hall is Claudia Vila, Manager of Disability Rights and Resources in the Department of Family Services.  She provides a great overview on this topic, and discusses resources available for adults with disabilities, older adults, and caregivers.  The Channel 16 crew visited the Wellness Center for Older Adults.  It’s the first of its kind in Fairfax County and offers both virtual and in-person services for older adults and individuals with developmental disabilities.  Rose Robinson, Division Manager, Long Term and Community Integration Services, as well as current clients talk about the benefit of this important resource.  We round out the program with a conversation with Susan Shaw, Transportation Options, Programs, and Services Program Manager, better known as TOPS – a valuable Fairfax County resource.
