Preparing to Grow Older Successfully: Paying for Elder Care
Join us to equip yourself with knowledge and understanding for your later years. On three consecutive Sundays, March 1, 8 and 15, from 1:00 – 2:30 pm, Silver Souls and Mount Pleasant Village will co-sponsor a three-part educational program addressing issues of particular concern to those of us in our older years, those approaching retirement, and caregivers. Each session will feature an expert in the area and time for Q&A and will cost $10. Register online or pay at the door.
