Gazette, O3A collaborating to produce ‘Neighbors’

Sequim Gazette staff

The Sequim Gazette and the Olympic Area Agency on Aging are now working together to produce the second edition of “Neighbors,” the popular annual Senior Resource Guide for Clallam and Jefferson counties.

 

At the heart of the guide is a comprehensive listing of all the resources available to help seniors, their caregivers and families live better, longer, more healthful lives.

 

“Neighbors” also provides important, informative articles, including in this edition a “Boomer Primer,” a plain-English introduction to the myriad governmental and private programs and resources available for seniors.

 

The first of America’s vast cadre of baby boomers turned 65 this year. Those first few eventually will be joined by more than 75 million Americans, making boomers the single largest, and wealthiest, demographic in American history. Mark Harvey, O3A’s expert on aging issues, penned the pieces and is working with Gazette staffers to ensure the guide accomplishes its primary goal of providing accurate, timely information for seniors across the peninsula.

 

The guide also will include details on the new affiliation of Olympic Medical Center, Forks Community Hospital and Jefferson Healthcare with Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, an innovative new idea in rural health care that promises to expand the quantity and quality of medical services available to seniors — and to everyone — living on the peninsula.

 

“Neighbors” also provides advertising opportunities for those who hope to reach this rapidly growing, multi-billion-dollar market.

 

“Neighbors” provides the perfect means of ensuring area seniors see your message — and so, too, will their families, who often make the decisions.
