The Upstate Institute will host “A Symposium on Aging in the Community” on Thursday, March 3, 2011 at 4:15 pm at the Colgate Bookstore. This symposium addresses issues for older adults aging in the community, including those who are maintaining independent residences and managing at home, and those who are undergoing residential transitions.
Meika Loe of Colgate University will discuss her work on Upstate New York residents and their creative strategies for aging at home. Janet Wilmoth of Syracuse University will discuss her work on residential transitions, including how common it is to move, local vs. long distance moves, reasons for moving, post-move adjustments. Anna Marie Vaughan of Madison County Office for the Aging will address the specific services and supports available in the community for older adults aging in place and experiencing transitions.
This event is free and open to the public.
