Please join us to learn about making your community senior friendly.  We hear that we need to prepare for the Silver Tsunami as the boomer generation ages and become seniors.  How do we even begin to face this daunting task?

Our guests today, Tami Neumann and Catherine Braxton, have confronted this challenge and created comprehensive programs to facilitate businesses and entire communities in becoming certified as senior-friendly. 

Tune into our show to learn what it takes to become senior friendly in areas such as health care, lifestyle, dementia care and in creating an inclusive environment.  Learn about how their efforts enabled the first city in the state of Illinois to become certified as senior friendly.  What did it take to make this goal a reality for Blue Island, Illinois?  How did this change life for the seniors, their families, area businesses and overall quality of life?

What can a change like this do for your community?  How can you advocate for this program in your community?  We hope you will join us for a time of learning and conversation.

During our 30 minute segment, you will be able to submit your questions for Tami and Catherine via the web chat or our call-in number.
