“The Other Talk”
Sep 15 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
"The Other Talk" @ The Hawthorn Center | Columbia | Maryland | United States

Sure, you told your kids about the birds and bees when the time was right. But have you considered having “The Other Talk” now that they (and you) are older? Nobody enjoys talking about the end of life, but it’s important to make sure your loved ones know your wishes when the time comes.

The Howard County Office on Aging will provide information and resources to assist in your discussions with family members and caregivers regarding health, legal, financial, and end-of-life concerns. This FREE workshop will make “The Other Talk” easier for everyone.

Rain Barrel Workshop

This event is made possible through a grant by the Chesapeake Bay Trust to engage the Middle Patuxent Environmental Area (MPEA) community in identifying best management practices for homeowners and finding engineering solutions for the impacts of stormwater-generated erosion and sediment. Please RSVP to tess@chesapeakedata.com by 9/7: The first 30
