Age Well talk to be held in Shoreham on Jan. 17

SHOREHAM — The Shoreham Congregational Church will host a free presentation by Age Well Vermont at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 17, in the Fellowship Hall.

Age Well Vermont is a non-profit organization that supports and advocates for the aging population of Northwestern Vermont. It has programs for nutrition and wellness, support for transitioning from hospitals to home, services like transportation and friendly visits to help elders remain at home, assistance and information about insurance and community agencies, and more.

Over 1,000 volunteers assist the staff in meeting the diverse needs of clients, their families, and caregivers, with the goal of helping our community members to age with confidence. Age Well wants seniors to have social opportunities, opportunities for good meals both at home and dining out, wellness and safety checks, and proper information about local agencies and services.

This program is free and open to the public. Senior citizens, family members or friends, caregivers and those interested in volunteering are all welcome.
