GROUP DISCUSSION:  AGING WITH GRACE

Tuesday, November 21, 3:30 pm
Fairbanks Senior Center

Public Welcome


Aging at Home Fairbanks
(AAH Fairbanks) is a membership organization for older adults in the Fairbanks area.  Members help each other remain independent and engaged as they age.

 

For an annual membership fee, members will have one-call access to services and support to help them stay in their homes as they grow older.  Most services are provided by volunteers.  For services that are beyond volunteer capacity, such as major home repairs and home health-care needs, members have access to a list of screened paid providers.  Social get-togethers, lectures, and educational workshops are added benefits!

 
AAH Fairbanks is a program of the non-profit North Star Council on Aging and is a member of the Village to Village Network of similar organizations.
Aging is a team sport.  Let's enjoy it together!


NEW DISCUSSION SERIES

TYING IT ALL TOGETHER: 
putting our affairs in order

An AGING WELL workshop Get It All Together -- and Share It was held on Tuesday, October 17. Pam Wagaman led a lively discussion of key documents and tasks to think about as we get older.  Why are these important? So we can put information in one place for others, for the time when we can no longer handle our own affairs or communicate our wishes.












In order to continue the discussion a four part series has been scheduled for the following dates at the Senior Center.  These discussions are open to the public.

Thursday, Oct. 26, 3:30 pm 
What do we need to do for ourselves now?  How we can take care of our own health and safety.

Thursday, Nov. 2, 3:30 pm
