SOS sponsors educational presentations throughout the year on a variety of topics related to elders and aging. These education talks are held at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), 604 West Moana Lane, Reno. Breakfast and networking begins at 9 a.m. The presentation is from 10-11 a.m.

Upcoming Education Talk

October - Affordable Housing: Community Services to Support You, Where You Want to Live! Be empowered and informed! Join us for an informative talk to learn more about how elders can live in the residence of their choice safely, independently and comfortably. Knowing your options and creating a plan will assist you in aging in place, and maintaining the quality of life and independence you seek. This Education Talk program presents a panel of experts to discuss (1) senior care communities - the joys of supported community life, (2) home modification and adult day care - community-based programs that support mobility and safety, and (3) in-home care - serving people in the safety and comfort of their own home.

Our panel: Dr. Peter Reed, Director, Sanford Center for Aging, and Professor of Community Health Sciences, UNR (Moderator); James Cox, Executive Director, Cascades of the Sierra; Diane Ross, Owner, The Continuum; and Ky Sisson, Director, Lend-A-Hand - In home services.

DATE: Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019

TIME: 9 a.m. networking and light breakfast sponsored by Morning Star Senior Living of Sparks. The panel discussion will start at 9:50 a.m.
