Silver Tsunami: Senior Services in Nevada County to be topic of LWV February meeting

“The Silver Tsunami: Senior Services in Nevada County” will be the topic of a panel of speakers at the next public meeting of the League of Women Voters Feb. 9, at Peace Lutheran Church, 828 West Main St. in Grass Valley.

Refreshments will be served at 9:30 a.m., and the program will commence at 10.

The program will feature three members of the community actively involved with senior programs. The panel will include Lori Burkart Frank, program manager for Aging and Disability Resource Connection; Sara Morrison, project director for Retired and Senior Volunteer Program and HELPLINE; and Mary Tucker, league member and senior advocate with a lengthy resume of activities in the area.

The panel will talk about what services are currently available, what are some of the problems seniors commonly confront as they age, and whether the county is prepared to deal with the increasing demand for services.

In addition to the panelists, others involved with services will be present to provide additional information, including Pam Kuhn of Telecare, Sandy Jacobsen of Senior Services and Ruth Schwartz of the Ombudsman program.

The public is invited to participate. One hour will be allotted for questions, providing an opportunity for members of the audience to question the panelists, and also to learn what concerns others might have.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. The LWV of Western Nevada County meets regularly on the second Saturday morning of most months at Peace Lutheran Church in Grass Valley.
