Learn How Sweet Your Feet Can Be

PRESENTED BY ASSOCIATED PODIATRISTS

If your heel moves too much or too little, it can cause other parts of your foot to function incorrectly. Over time, stress from poor foot function can stretch or tear the ligaments or tendons in your heel. Treatment goals for these problems include reducing abnormal pull on the ligaments and tendons.

Please join Dr. Satooj  from Associated Podiatrists in North Haven for a discussion on common foot pain and problems. Our philosophy is to help educate people to have the necessary information to make good decisions regarding their foot and ankle health. The main topics will include heel pain, athletes foot, and nail fungus, while any other questions you may have will be addressed.

DATE: Wednesday, March 6, 2019; 11:00 AM in Studio A

LEARN HOW TO KEEP YOUR LIFE INTACT AND AGE IN PLACE

PRESENTED BY HOME INSTEAD and a PANEL OF GUESTS FROM VARIOUS LOCAL SENIOR LIVING ALTERNATIVES

What is Aging in Place?
Aging in place means being able to live in the home of your choice for as long as you are able, while being able to get any assistance, services, or other support you require as your needs change. It sounds pretty cut and dry. However, there is more to it than you may think.

Aging-in-place is not a magic formula. Rather, it is a choice seniors can make to try to ensure a higher quality of life and control their circumstances as they age. It is a decision that requires some forethought and family discussion. Join David Lapic from Home Instead as he hosts a panel of representatives from local senior living alternatives. This will not be a sales pitch, but rather they will provide you with an overview of the type of living community that they represent and answer any questions you might have.

There are a number of aging-in-place topics, including information about your home, community and more to consider while creating your aging in place plan, or help your parents create a plan.  So join us for this event that will organize many of these questions into an understandable and time efficient format.

DATE: Wednesday, March 13, 2019

TIME: 11:00AM in Studio B

COST:  This event is FREE! Please sign up at the front desk if you would like to participate so we have an accurate head count.
