A NEW YEAR ! A NEW YOU !

Ye Olde Book Shoppe, in partnership with Commonwealth Senior Living, will host a series of four talks on the ups and downs of senior living. These workshops will include brief, informal talks by experts in the field, questions from attendees and answers from the experts, as well as free and open discussion among the speakers and those in attendance. Programs will begin at 11:00 a.m. at Ye Olde Book Shoppe in Heathsville and last perhaps an hour and a half. These seminars are open to the public and free of charge. Seating, however, is limited so we ask that you reserve a place for yourself by calling the Northumberland Public Library at (804) 580-5051.
 
Our first program is on Wednesday January 8 starting at 11:00 A.M. Ye Olde Book Shoppe is located at 7072 Northumberland Highway (next to Kathy’s Korner and across the street from Subway). Speaking will be Jill White and her topic will be “Adding Life To Your Years”. Jill has been working with Seniors and Senior Communities for 20 years. She is  a Certified Dementia Practitioner and a Certified Alzheimers Facilitator. Content for her presentation has been drawn from her own experience and also collected from recent demographic studies, research on attitudes, moods and sensibilities common to a wide range of seniors, and from international studies of “Blue Zones” (a phrase worth Googling) throughout the world.. She is an extremely knowledgeable and animated speaker and has helped hundreds of Golden Agers find ways of enhancing the quality of their lives as senior citizens. 
 
After the January 8 program, the next three programs will meet on the first Wednesday of each month, all beginning at 11:00 A.M. and including a light lunch.
