Long-term care: Myths, facts and options

Groton Council on Aging is hosting a public forum, Exploring your long-term care choices: Myths, facts and options, on Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 6:30 p.m. at the Groton Senior Center.

Trying to maneuver the path of long-term care can be overwhelming and confusing. Planning ahead can help alleviate much of the anxiety by eliminating the fallacies and providing valuable and accurate information.

Join our professional panel as we provide you the tools necessary to begin this process. This program is for those that want to plan, "just in case" and for the adult children who feel they would benefit from planning ahead for themselves or their parents.


Our panel includes: Nancy Catalini Chew, Elder Law and Estate Attorney; Kathleen Hubbard, Business Development Manager. Nashoba Associated Boards of Health & Nashoba Nursing Service & Hospice; Robert Johnson, Groton's Veterans' Service Officer; Margaret Perras, Senior Director of Marketing, Rivercourt; Suzanne Roberts, LCSW, Cooperative Elder Services; and Kathy Shelp, facilitator, Groton Council on Aging director.

Please call the senior center for more information at 978-448-1170.
