In the community

Hey, Malheur County, you can help tackle a critical topic: aging

Aging isn’t something that people talk about much. The Malheur Community Conversations on Aging sponsored by Age+ and Malheur County leaders hope to change that. 

On Saturday, Aug. 20, from 1 to 4 p.m., the community coalition invites people of all ages for facilitated discussions about the challenges of aging themselves and for their loved ones. 

Those interested in joining the conversation can register by calling 541-889-7651 or going to www.ageplus.org/register.

“If we’re lucky we’re talking about all of our futures,” said Julia Brown, Age+ community outreach and engagement manager. “We run away and avoid talking about aging. I’m here to tell you there’s so much to look forward to with aging. 

“It’s crucial to break down the barriers we’ve built in society.”
