MODERN WORLD 101 GRANDPARENTS AS PARENTS SUPPORT PROGRAM
Center for Positive Aging.
"…there is an increase in the amount of primary caregiver grandparents who are living in poverty. About one in five grandparent-run households live below the poverty line and about half of those families live three times below the poverty level. In 2011, the national average for a family of four to be considered in poverty is approximately one making an annual collective income of $22,350. This amount makes it difficult for any family to provide the resources they need to support their families."
The Modern World 101 Program supports grandparents who are primary caregivers by:
-Teaching grandparents how to access resources to help them raise grandchildren.
-Teaching grandparents course on modern technology and how to protect their grandchildren from Internet risks and danger.
-Teaching communication methods to bridge the generation gap.
The Center for Positive Aging serves the LeadingAge Georgia (formerly Aging Services of Georgia).
