The Volunteer Hospice of Clallam County hosts a “Living Alone Now” workshop from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, at the Clallam County PUD Facility, 104 Hooker Road.
Mark Harvey, who writes “Help Line,” a weekly column focusing on issues of aging, caregiving and preparing for one’s final years in the Sunday editions of the Peninsula Daily News, will facilitate the workshop.
Harvey is the director of Clallam/Jefferson Senior Information & Assistance, which operates through the Olympic Area Agency on Aging, and a member of the Community Advocates for Rural Elders partnership.
The workshop is designed to offer a face-to-face discussion between Harvey and those experiencing a transition due to the recent loss of a life partner. He has requested that participants submit in advance their questions about Medicare, Medicaid, long-term care, in-home help and end-of-life planning so he can address individual concerns. Questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 360-452-1511 and asking for the Volunteer Services Manager.
The workshop is free and open to the public. As space is limited, pre-registration is required by calling the office reception at 360-452-1511 or emailing to email@example.com.
