Consider This on Getting Older and Staying Connected

with Andrea Cano and Fred Grewe

November 6, 2023 | 5:00 p.m. Pacific | AllCare Health community room

1701 NE 7th St., Grants Pass OR 97526

Aging is a life-long experience that is both universal and different for everyone. Some people join new communities and friendships in old age, while others experience profound isolation. Generational divides, both real and perceived, can add to a sense of not belonging. Join Andrea Cano and Fred Grewe for a conversation about aging and belonging: What are our fears around aging? How can we collaborate across generational divides? What can we do to ensure people are fully included in our communities as they age?

This event is presented in partnership with Josephine Community Library District and is part of Oregon Humanities' 2023–24 Consider This series on fear and belonging

The conversation will also be streamed live on YouTube. You can view the event here.
