At our CARP Halton Chapter community meetings in April we will have speakers from the Townsend Smith Palliative Care Hospice Foundation and Acclaim Health Halton will discuss Advance Care Planning: Let’s Start the Conversation
Advance Care Planning is about letting family and friends know what kind of health and personal care you would want in future if you become incapable of consenting to or refusing medical treatment or other care. Join us to continue your thinking about future health care wishes and choices. Benefit from the knowledge and experience of our speaker, and an Advance Care Planning Workbook.
Our Milton meeting will be held on Wednesday April 12th, 2017 at the Seniors Activity Centre, 500 Childs Drive, Milton
Our Burlington meeting will be held on Tuesday April 25th, 2017 at the Seniors Centre, 2285 New Street, Burlington.
Our meetings at both locations will be held in the evening. Doors will open at 6.30pm with the main meeting taking place between 7.00pm and 9.00pm. Coffee and tea will be available.
As usual we will have a number of sponsors at both locations. We will be pleased to welcome Burlington Memorial Gardens at both locations; Driving Miss Daisy and Marion Goard will join us at Burlington. We encourage you to visit their displays, to chat with their representative and gather more information about the services they provide. Halton Chapter thanks them for their support of our meetings.
Burlington Memorial Gardens: Established in 1979, Burlington Memorial Gardens features over 100 acres of beautifully landscaped and immaculately manicured gardens. Part of the Arbor group of cemeteries and funeral homes, the property is part of the historic Niagara Escarpment.
Driving Miss Daisy: Driving Miss Daisy prides itself on improving the quality of life for seniors and those with special needs through accompaniment and companionship, including personal transportation services. Michael and Cathy Walker are pleased to be celebrating their ﬁrst year, providing these support services in Oakville and Halton Region. We can personalize and customize our support services to meet the individual’s needs including doctor appointments, visiting loved ones or general errands. We are much more than transportation.
Marion Goard, Sales Representative, Master-Accredited Senior Agent & Seniors Real Estate Specialist: As well as being a licensed real estate professional, Marion is a Master Accredited Senior Agent® (M-ASA) and Senior Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) specializing in helping Seniors’ and their families through every stage of later-in-life real estate transactions.
The meetings will begin with a short welcoming address from our Chairperson, Tom Carrothers. Tom will also provide a brief update on your CARP Halton Chapter and CARP National activities.
This will be followed by our featured speakers.
There will be a break at the midway point in the presentation which will allow time to socialize with fellow members and to visit our sponsors.
Both meetings will conclude with a few closing remarks from Tom and our 50/50 draw. We encourage you to support this draw as proceeds help defray the costs of putting on our meetings.
Our meetings are FREE. All are welcome. Please support CARP Halton Chapter. We look forward to meeting our members and friends.
