Special Program for Senior Citizens and their Families
The Great Falls Citizens Association (GFCA) is hosting a special program focusing on issues facing senior citizens.
The Seminar for Savvy Seniors and their Families will be held on Saturday December 1, from 10 am to noon, at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 10550 Georgetown Pike (park in the lot behind the church, and enter the building there). The public is invited. This meeting will feature a range of speakers, a panel discussion, questions from the audience, and a social time afterward for personal discussions with the speakers. Light refreshments will be served. The meeting is designed so that senior citizens can learn about options in the Northern VA area that may assist them as they age in place in their own homes or in senior communities. It is also an opportunity for their children to learn about the issues that they can help their aging parents deal with, and about resources available to help.
The meeting’s agenda:
Welcome: Bill Canis, GFCA President
Fairfax County’s Seniors programs: Dranesville Supervisor John Foust
Remarks/presentations followed by panel discussion:

The program will include a time for questions from the audience and a social time afterwards so that residents can speak individually with the speakers.
