Celebrating Seniors Week
Celebrating Seniors Week 2015 benefitted over six-hundred older adults who participated in one or more of its 20 free, informative, and engaging events and programs. Attendees gained valuable knowledge, tools, and information that helped them with such tasks as declaring healthcare and property power of attorneys, establishing a living will, decluttering their home, or furthering their strength and well-being. Programming also included live musical performances, lectures, and multiple screenings of the award-nominated documentary, I’ll Be Me, which followed country-music star, Glenn Campbell, as he dealt with his Alzheimer’s diagnosis and concluded his “Goodbye Tour.” The week’s Kick-Off Luncheon honored “70 over 70” volunteers who gave freely of their time and resources to help make Lyons, Proviso, and Riverside Townships a place to age well. The week ran May 18-22. The next Celebrating Seniors Week will occur in May 2016. For more information about the celebration please contact Linda Hussey, Aging Well Coordinator, at (708) 354-1323 ext. 242 or email@example.com.
