Talbot Community Connections Holds Second Annual Senior Summit on Aging–Growing Older and Loving ItThe aging process doesn’t have to be a daunting one. Talbot Community Connections (TCC) and the Talbot County Department of Social Services are hoping that by sharing the right tools with seniors that the aging process can be approached with fun, relaxation, and dose of humor. This year, the two organizations hosted the second annual Senior Summit, “Growing Older and Loving It,” on Thursday, June 8th, at the Talbot Community Center. This day-long program for seniors, children of seniors, caregivers, professionals, and concerned citizens provided presentations and discussions on the issues that seniors face today.
The Senior Summit included workshops on downsizing and moving, safe driving, prescription drug misuse, nutrition and yoga, financial planning for retirement, medical planning and advanced directives, self-defense for seniors, and finding your balance. In addition to break-out workshops, there will be the opportunity for participants to have lunch and to visit vendor tables to gather additional information on aging issues and services.
