Now through December – Experts Advise: Stop Putting Off “The Talk” with Aging Parents

Knowing your aging parents’ end-of life wishes well in advance can save your family years of heartache, bickering, or even legal issues. Yet approximately 80 million Americans are so uncomfortable with the topics that arise in these conversations that they’ve delayed the discussion entirely. Senior care service Home Instead, Inc. gathered renowned experts to help make this potentially-difficult conversation easier for families; the result was the “40-70 Rule” Program, which encourages adult children approaching 40 to broach a number of aging and end-of-life topics before their parents turn 70. To learn more about the Action Plan for Successful Aging or The 40-70 Rule, please visit 4070Talk.com for free support resources including conversation starters, communications tips, and how-to videos. Or, for more information, please call (916) 920-2273 or visit homeinstead.com/175.

Ongoing – Placerville Main Library Fill Our Shelves Campaign

Placerville Main Library is busier than ever, checking out nearly 300,000 items last year – yet funds for new books and other vital materials continue to dwindle. The Friends of the Library – Placerville Chapter has launched a “Fill Our Shelves” campaign to raise some of this much-needed funding from the community. Unlike the other libraries in the county system, Placerville Main Library receives no specific direct tax support and must rely on the County General Fund to provide the services patrons need. A donation of $250 goes toward “sponsoring” a shelf in the New Book Nook or Children’s Library area for at least a year, with placement of a metal plate with the donor’s name on the shelf. A donation of $100 will purchase four new books with the donor’s name (or that of an honoree) inside each one. Other monetary donations to the program are also welcome and will be acknowledged. For more information, visit eldoradolibrary.org/friends.htm.
