Family and Consumer Sciences

Families face many challenges on a day-to-day basis. UI Extension, Nez Perce County provides research-based information on healthy aging, food safety and preservation, nutrition and resource management.

Healthy Aging

Transferring Non-titled Assets

There are several factors to consider when developing a plan to transfer your personal property. Passing down family heirlooms and mementos (such as photos, dishes and other personal belongings) often creates more challenges than titled property such as houses, cars or savings accounts. Non-titled property may or may not have financial value but often has sentimental, historical or emotional meaning for both the giver and receiver.

Communication Across the Generations

Each generation brings diverse perspectives, values, needs and expectations. Learning to accommodate and appreciate different styles can bring people from multiple generations together to communicate effectively and meet group goals.


Food Safety and Preservation

Home preservers who want to keep their food safe and nutritious should follow current methods. Information about food preservation and food safety is available at the UI Extension, Nez Perce County office.

Pressure Canner Testing

  • Pressure canner dial gauges need testing yearly, and more often if you use your canner all year long. Bring your gauge to the UI Extension, Nez Perce County office for testing. We can test it within 24 hours, and sometimes even while you wait.
