Loneliness and Aging: A Conversation with Pamela Slaughter
April 11 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Free Discussion: Loneliness and Aging
The event is part of Oregon Humanities’ statewide Conversation Project.
Loneliness and isolation are common experiences for elderly people, especially for those who do not have nearby family members or who are not computer literate. What do you know about the elders in your life or in your neighborhood? Are they connected to their families in an enriching way? Do they belong to a caring community of some kind? This conversation is for elderly people and people who live near elders or have elderly people in their lives to explore questions, experiences, and obstacles to showing up for elderly people and to generate ideas for connection.
This is the focus of Loneliness and Aging, a free conversation with Pamela Slaughter on Thursday, April 11 at 5:30pm. This event is hosted by Curry Public Library and sponsored by Oregon Humanities. RSVP below.
