Aging in Place Seminar

Between August 1, 2016 and September 30, 2016, an Aging in Place survey was available for feedback from local seniors on topics such as services, activities and programs. The surveys were anonymous but will give staff a greater insight on where our resources should be focused next; or even more importantly, which resources we are lacking in our community. This seminar will present the results of the survey as well as provide further insight of the citizen’s demands.  READ MORE ABOUT THE SEMINAR HERE
