LWVWNC Event | The Silver Tsunami: Senior Services in Nevada County on Feb. 9


    Google+    

By: League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County

January 25, 2013 - "The Silver Tsunami: Senior Services in Nevada County" will be the topic of a panel of speakers at the next public meeting of the League of Women Voters on Saturday morning, February 9, at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 West Main Street, Grass Valley. Refreshments will be served at 9:30, and the program commences at 10.

The program will feature three members of the community actively involved with senior programs. They are Lori Burkart Frank, Program Manager for Aging and Disability Resource Connection (ADRC); Sara Morrison, Project Director for Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) and HELPLINE; and Mary Tucker, LWV member and Senior Advocate with a lengthy resume of activities in the area.

The panel will talk about what services are currently available, what are some of the problems seniors commonly confront as they age, and, with an increasing senior population, whether the county is prepared to deal with the increased demand for service?

In addition to the panelists, others involved with services will be present to provide additional information, including Pam Kuhn of Telecare, Sandy Jacobsen of Senior Services, and Ruth Schwartz of the Ombudsman program.

One hour will be allotted for questions providing ample opportunity for members of the audience to question the panelists, and also to learn what concerns others might have.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy. The LWV of Western Nevada County meets regularly on the second Saturday morning of most months at Peace Lutheran Church in Grass Valley. For more information, please visit www.LWVWNC.org.
