March Update

Committed to promoting conversation and improving access to information and resources as we live and age together. 

We had a great first monthly discussion over lunch! On February 14th, 13 of us gathered and thought about Loving Winter. Jim Mason offered important guidance and there was rich discussion about staying safe and connected in winter … and now it’s seeming a little more like winter! Read about the discussion and find a summary of Jim’s tips here.

Our Next Aging in Our Community Team meeting is Monday March 6th at 7pm by Zoom. Join us as we plan our work in the community together. All are welcome.

On March 21st at noon in the CCL Living Room, we’ll discuss Planning Our Best Future – How to make the most of our money, so we can take care of our home, our health, and our family. We’ll get a quick overview from expert Renee Harvey of Caldwell Law and discuss considerations for everyone (whether we think we have an “estate” or not). There are lots of pieces to this puzzle, and we’ll tailor the discussion to attendees’ questions. If you have questions you’d like to ask, we’d appreciate hearing them. Email us or call  603-795-0603.

Our gathering will be a safe space for open conversation. Come with questions or concerns. Come and share your wisdom and experience. There will be time for free conversation on any topic that interests you. Join us! If you need a ride, just call.

On April 11th, we’ll discuss advance care planning for changes in our health and for the end of our lives, just in time for National Healthcare Decisions Day, April 16th.
