Learn about Aging in Place

Spectrum Generations Coastal Community Center will sponsor an Aging in Place and community symposium from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 12 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on Belvedere Road.

The daylong event will feature tips and talks from aging experts to help elderly populations access resources and services that can help them be able to continue living in their own homes.

Through panel discussions, personal stories, interactive workshops, exhibits and a community conversation, this year's symposium focuses on thriving in place and downsizing as one learns how to be successful at refashioning one's place in time.

Program leaders, peers and professionals will examine the multiple aspects of downsizing one's space, rightsizing one's lifestyle, assessing the livability of one's' home and community so that one can stay at home and in place within one's community of choice. 

Orders for healthy boxed lunches, to be prepared by the Elder Care Network of Lincoln County, will be available for participants to pick up during the symposium's lunch break for $7 each.

Boxed lunches must be ordered and paid for in advance.

To place an order, call 563-1363.
