Sparking New Solutions to Aging in WNC

Do you want to redefine aging? Join AARP North Carolina in the Mountain Region and the YMCA of WNC on Wednesday, January 10th from 4:00 – 6:30 PM at the Salvage Station in Asheville. We will celebrate those who participated in the Disrupt Aging Community Health Challenge and ignite a new year by challenging outdated beliefs and sparking new solutions so people can choose how they age as they live.

This opportunity for fun with purpose is awaiting the final ingredient – YOU. You will learn more about how AARP and the YMCA are collaborating with the community to disrupt aging in our region and find out how you can get involved. Show your talent – sing, dance, mime, read a poem at the talent show and enjoy complimentary food.

The YMCA and AARP look forward to meeting you to change the conversation about aging in our community. Registration and information at www.disruptagingchallenge.org or contact Rebecca Chaplin, AARP Associate State Director in the Mountain Region at 828-380-6242.

    This is so important. Everyone should have the opportunity to age in place if they can, and the key is often planning ahead. Finding a home with accessibility features, or outfitting your current home, can make a world of difference as you begin to age.
