Panel Conversation: Aging in Place- Program Models and Community Resources: Friday, Sept. 30, 2-3 p.m. (Virtual)
Most of us want to age in place and remain in our community, but as we get older, the odds of becoming more dependent and socially isolated are higher. Therefore, to age in place, it is important to have different services and supports to help us meet our basic daily and health needs. In this panel conversation, we will explore different community models that promote social connection, health, quality of life, and in turn, aging in place. Online Registration or call 703-324-5484.
