The El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce recently awarded Elder Options Inc. a small business grant to be used to develop a series of educational talks focused on issues pertinent to older adults in El Dorado County.
Older adults are among the fastest growing age groups overall (2014 is the year the youngest Boomers turn 50) and El Dorado County has one of the fastest growing segments of older adults in the state of California.
Along with the excitement that comes along with thinking about retirement and aging well, there exist areas of concern on exactly how to craft the next chapter to be what you hope for or how to help your parents improve their well-being during the coming years.
Elder Options hopes to address these areas of concern over a series of discussions led by respected and qualified speakers from both El Dorado County and the greater Sacramento areas.
The first talk is scheduled for Sept. 17, from 9 a.m.-noon at the El Dorado County Library, 345 Fair Lane in Placerville.
The topic for September’s presentation is tentatively on How VA Benefits Can Help. Future topics for the series will include dementia and memory impairment, women and money, legal issues for retirement and future planning and how to age joyfully.
Although these talks are free to the public, seating is limited.
Call Elder Options Inc. at 530-626-6939 to make a reservation for September’s discussion on How VA Benefits Can Help.
