The Dallas County APS Community Board is an organization that supports APS Caseworkers and staff, and their clients in 10 Dallas-area offices. Funds raised through the Caregiver Appreciation Luncheon are used to support the Staff through continuing education, recognition and appreciation and resources. Funds will also be used to stock the Silver Star Room with needed supplies such as box fans, space heaters, adult briefs and nutritional supplements.

Acappella’s senior leadership team attended the Dallas Area Gerontological Society’s 27th Annual Fall Forum in Dallas last month. DAGS is a non-profit, voluntary organization for people concerned for
and interested in aging issues.
Topics this fall included mental health, affordable senior housing, community resources for area seniors, and geriatric medicine.
Director of Nursing and owner Jo Alch said, “We’ve been attending the DAGS forums for many years now. What a resource it is! I learn something new at each event. It’s perfect for seniors and those who care for them.”
