MOST RECENT NEWSLETTER - SUMMER 2013
Hi Friends of SVAN, Please see two publications recently released by the Saratoga Vital Aging Network – The Decision Making Process and Housing Opportunities for Seniors. Change is always difficult and the “The Decision Making Proces” booklet chronicles personal stories from seniors who went through the daunting process to downsize, leave their home or community or move closer to relatives. The housing booklet discusses housing that is available or could be (or should be) available in Saratoga Springs. The publications may be of help to seniors, their families and/or their caregivers. We hope you find these booklets helpful. Download here.
