Seattle is one of the 100 Resilient Cities around the world working to become more resilient to the physical, social and economic challenges that are a growing part of the 21st century. There will be many ways to become involved; right now, the organizers are working to ensure that the foundation of this effort is centered on the issues that are most compelling to the community. Please take 10 minutes to take the Seattle Resilience Survey and then share it with your friends and family.

I’ve Never Been This Age Before!

with Gerontologist & Storyteller Dori Gillam

Thursday, Oct. 26, 7:30 PM, Anderson Hall

NWCCA board president, community organizer, speaker, facilitator and performer Dori Gillam takes aim at ageism and what we can do about it.

The media portrays growing older as if it is all about aches, pains and things we can’t do. Take a break and look at aging in a lighter way. We’ll laugh about the realities of aging and the ways you can rise above the negatives and build resilience going forward. Age is not a four-letter word!

A hospice volunteer and certified gerontologist, Dori cared for her elder parents for seven years. She believes in aging positively and handling difficult end-of-life discussions with levity and pragmatism.
