March 27, 2014

MISSOULA – The public is invited to a free lecture titled “Aging in Place: Rethinking Solutions to Staying Home as We Age,” as part of the Montana Gerontology Society’s annual conference held April 9-10 in Missoula.

The lecture, presented by Louis Tenenbaum, will address solutions for older adults to stay in their homes as they age, and to help communities create infrastructure and investments which promote independence among seniors. It will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, at the Hilton Garden Inn located at 3720 N. Reserve St.

Tenenbaum is a former carpenter and contractor and now a leading thinker, speaker and consultant on aging in place. He helps businesses, nonprofits and communities understand their business-model relationships to promote aging in place.

The two-day conference, titled “Foundations for Successful Aging,” is open to older adults, caregivers and professionals who serve older adults. Speeches by Tenenbaum and sessions will address the built environment as well as health care, financial and legal issues surrounding aging in place in Montana. All sessions will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Conference registration fees cost between $40 and $180 depending on Montana Gerontology Society membership and the number of days or sessions participants want to attend. Registration is available online at http://montanagerontology.org/annual-conference-registration-montana-gerontology/.
