Town Hall Meeting for Senior Community Set for February 16

Published on February 11, 2016

Home is where the heart is. This is especially true for the 140,000 people in Placer County age 50 and older (38% of the entire population), some of whom may have concerns about staying in their homes as long as they can.

The senior years can be an exciting stage in our lives, but can also present challenges for our seniors and their caregivers. Placer County's Older Adult Advisory Commission in conjunction with the Area 4 Agency on Aging offers assistance to our golden generation to help them remain as independent as possible.

Placer County District 3 Supervisor Jim Holmes will host a town hall meeting for senior citizens and family caregivers February 16 in North Auburn to identify issues important to the county's senior community. The meeting is an opportunity for the community to learn about and offer suggestions for older adult services that meet the preferences and needs of our seniors.

"This town hall meeting is a great opportunity to learn more about available older adult services," said Holmes, who is also a member of Older Adult Advisory Council. "I'm looking forward to hearing input from our citizens on what other services may be needed to help make Placer County a place they can truly thrive."

The meeting will be held Tuesday, February 16, at the Community Development Resource Center, 3091 County Center Drive, Suite 280, in North Auburn from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Additional meetings in the Roseville and Tahoe areas are coming soon.

The meeting is open to the public, but space is limited. Anyone interested in attending should call to reserve their seat, 530-889-9500, or to request disability-related accommodations in advance.
