In a recent survey it was reported that over 80 percent of seniors would rather live out the rest of their days in their own home and not in an assisted living or similar facility. At one time, there were only two choices for seniors and they were to stay in their home or live with their children. Now, there are so many choices and services to help seniors live in their homes longer. It is important to hold family meetings with one's parents to discuss how it will work and if additional in-home help will be needed.

Help Our Neighbors will be holding a seminar on Tuesday, April 29, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the lower level of the Chatfield Public Library. One can receive information and resources for aging parents and their living options. Southeast Minnesota Area Agency on Aging will share resources available for those living in their home. Chosen Valley Care Center will share housing options beyond one's home. Help Our Neighbors will share options for assistance through community volunteers.

Come and get the conversation started! A light supper will be served at 6 p.m. The seminar and light supper are free of charge.

The event is sponsored by Help Our Neighbors, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping seniors continue living in their homes by providing a variety of services.
