Most older adults wish to grow older in their own community, often in their own homes. Many models have emerged to help seniors "age in place," or develop "Aging Friendly Communities." Many rely on federally-developed and funded services provided by the Aging Network. Others, like our Chicago Hyde Park Village, are developed and funded by grass-roots members. The most recent models focus on linking federal, professional philanthropic, and individual resources to help us remain healthy and engaged. The focus is on adding life to our years.

Learn from panelists about different models operating on the South Side, and discuss policy and practice recommendations.

This event was organized by the Hyde Park OWL chapter. Co-sponsored by the Chicago Hyde Park Village and OWL of Dupage area.

Space is limited! To register, call CHPV at 773-363-1933.
