JCC to host panel on aging at home

The population is aging, forcing us to re-evaluate how we think about elder care. For more and more Americans, the idea of spending years in a nursing home is unacceptable. Figuring out how to age in one’s own home is more important than ever.

On Wednesday, July 11, at 7:15 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center’s Carlyn H. Wohl Building/Ida Pasternak Auditorium, there will be a seminar on aging.

Participants will include John Gamache, Mid-East Area Agency on Aging director of planning and development; Lori Goldberg, LCSW, at Transition Strategies, a business venture of Jewish Family and Children’s Services; Susan Stark, Ph.D., OTR/L at Washington University School of Medicine Program in Occupational Therapy; Monique M. Williams, M.D. a Washington University School of Medicine, instructor of medicine, division of geriatrics and nutritional science

This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.

Reservations are requested by July 8.
