The Aging in Place Speaker’s Bureau provides informative presentations that energize and empower older adults and those who care for them to make informed decisions about their future and protect the health and quality of their lives. Volunteers regularly speak at local faith based groups, civic organizations, neighborhood associations, and many other types of community groups.
Topics focus on issues import to older adults and can be tailored to meet specific needs of various groups and communities. Presentations are conducted by a group of trained volunteers who provide factual, unbiased information.
