‘Aging in Comfort’ to be presented March 27 by Island Senior Resources

Resource Fair to discuss Medicare, social security, caregiving and hospice

Help with all the issues that come with aging — health insurance, Medicare, social security benefits, caregiving resources and hospice services will be discussed at the “Aging in Comfort” Resource Fair from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27.

The free event is sponsored by the Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner and Island Senior Resources and includes a free lunch. It’s being held at Island Senior Resources, 14594 State Road 525, Langley.

People of all ages are encouraged to attend. After the short presentations on a variety of topics, staff and volunteers will be available to answer questions, offer support and provide assistance. For more information, contact Chasity Smith at Island Senior Resources, 360-321-1600, or see www.senior-resources.org.

A support group also gathers regularly at the Freeland Library to discuss the many challenges of growing older. Called Aging in Grace Support Group, it usually meets on Monday mornings. “Come laugh, cry, make friends, and connect with others as we accept and adapt to the limitations that aging brings,” states the description.

The group is led by Aging and Disability Resource manager of Island Senior Resources Nicole Donovan.

The next Aging in Grace support group is scheduled 10 a.m.- noon, Monday, April 8 at Freeland Library, 5495 Harbor Ave.
