GFCA will host a special program focusing on issues facing senior citizens as they age in place in their homes. This meeting will be held on Saturday December 1, from 10 am to noon, at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 10550 Georgetown Pike (park in the lot behind the church and enter the building through the back). Both GFCA members and the public are invited.
This meeting will feature a range of speakers, a panel discussion, questions from the audience, and a social time afterward for personal discussions with the speakers. Light refreshments will be served.
The meeting is designed so that senior citizens can learn about options in Great Falls that may assist them as they age in place in their own homes. It is also an opportunity for their children to learn about the issues that they can help their aging parents deal with, and about resources available to help.
The meeting’s agenda:
Welcome: Bill Canis, GFCA President
Fairfax County seniors programs: Dranesville Supervisor John Foust
Remarks/presentations followed by panel discussion:
Carol Blackwell, Great Falls Senior Center
Carol Edelstein, Shepherd’s Center of Great Falls

Stan Corey, retired financial planner and author of a new book on how to manage seniors’ issues
GFCA members and the general public are all welcome. Please encourage family, friends and neighbors to join you at this informational program on issues that will affect all of us sooner or later.
