Aging in Community

The Aging in Community Committee was formed this year to gather the voices of BWC’s older members and determine if and how our community can sustain and nourish us as we age. We provide opportunities for learning, support and activism.

Join us for our next session, a conversation about housing options as we age, on Sunday, December 18th, 2016 from 10:30 am - 12:30 pm at Runkle School: 50 Druce St, Brookline, MA 02445

There will be a panel presentation with Emily Saltz, geriatric care manager along with Boston Workmen Cirlce members Miriam Habib and Sandy Sachs who will share their journeys in making housing choices as they grew older.
 
There will be opportunity for small group conversation following the panel. We encourage all those who are interested to join us whether or not you participated in the first session.
 
The Aging in Community Committee is offering this forum as an opportunity to think about and discuss various ideas for housing options as we age. Boston Workmen’s Circle is not considering at this time any housing program development.

In the Spring of 2016 we hosted our first four-part series:

"Identity, Meaning and Generativity -  How to keep on keeping on"
Who are we once we retire?   Where do we find meaning in our lives? How do we continue to feel like we’re making a difference: for ourselves, our community, our world. Join with other BWC members to share experiences; examine our feelings; consider options and enjoy one another’s company.
