Village Forum Aging in Place Program Series – Part III is Friday, October 27

Join Community Partnership on Aging for a series of programs, each focusing on the importance of aging in place – and various resources available to older adults who wish to remain in their homes for as long as possible.  The first of the series included a panel of professionals in the aging field and  was held Friday, June 9 with more than 60 participants in attendance!  Panelists who participated in the discussion were Bridget McQuaide, CARE Program Coordinator and Certified Aging in Place Specialist;  Beda Madden, Social Worker at Community Partnership on Aging; Dr. Richard Jones, Ph.D., Administrator of the Cuyahoga County Division of Senior and Adult Services; Wesley Walker of the Home Repair Resource Center; and Beth Glas from Maximum Accessible Housing of Ohio.

Part III will be held on Friday, October 27 at 1:00 PM at Mayfield Village Civic Hall, 6621 Wilson Mills Rd.
