Aging Well with Family and Community


Share post:


This October through December, Newton Highlands Congregational Church will offer a four-part community conversation with expert speakers encouraging us to think about

  • How we and our parents want to age
  • How to access community resources
  • How to take charge of our end-of-life decisions

Too often, end-of-life decisions are made by default. But we benefit by reflecting on what we hope and dream for our own care and that of our loved ones. This series takes time for faithful conversation in a safe space.

The sessions will be held on Zoom; session 4 may include an in-person option. This is planned as a four-part series, but you may attend only one or two sessions.

Suggested donation: $10 for each session
Session 4 is open to all at no charge

Lest We Forget: Essential Conversations in the Coronavirus Era (Thursday, November 12, 7:15-8:30 p.m.)
