Consider This: Getting Older and Staying Connected

Library partners with Oregon Humanities and AllCare Health to offer program for seniors and their families

Senior community members and their families and caretakers are invited to a program featuring three Oregonians who work at the intersection of aging and community: pastors Andrea Cano and Fred Grewe and gerontologist Jenny Sasser on Monday, November 6 from 5–6:30 pm at the AllCare Health Community Room, 1701 NE 7th St., Grants Pass. This event will also be streamed live at

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.

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? Explore these questions and more at this free community event.

This event is open to the public. A library card is not needed to participate.

The Consider This program series is sponsored by The National Endowment for the Humanities, United We Stand Initiative, Oregon Cultural Trust, Susan Hammer Fund of the, and Oregon Community Foundation.
