The Senior Health Activities Recreation Program (SHARP) and CAP-21, along with The Community Foundation of Herkimer & Oneida Counties, Inc. and The Health Foundation for Western and CNY, would like to learn more about needed programs that would enable people to remain in their own communities and live as independently as possible as they age.
We want to develop these projects collaboratively, in partnership with those who are most directly affected by what goes on as they live and work in the community.
As a result, six focus groups are being held throughout our two-county region to gather information and provide community feedback.
The end result will be a community road map that will lay out the steps necessary to enable seniors to live as independently as possible in their community.
The public is invited to attend our initial brainstorming focus group that will be held Wednesday, August 5 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at Niccolls Memorial Presby-terian Church at 228 Crosby Boulevard in Old Forge.
Complimentary snacks and beverages will be provided.
Please RSVP to either CAP-21 at (315) 369-3353 or to Niccolls Church at 369-3475 by August 4, to let us know if you will be able to attend.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, August 5th.
