LOOKING AHEAD TO SEPTEMBER



How to Speak to your DoctorHow to Speak to your Doctor
Tuesday, September 8, 3:30 - 5:00pm

On September 8, At Home on the Sound begins the first in a 3-part series to advance your health advocacy skills.  These skills are more important than ever because of all the changes going on in our health care environment.  These presentations address the concerns of seniors dealing with difficult issues that inevitably come up in later years.  The goal is to engage participants to discuss and think about preparing for various possible and probable situations ahead of time instead of having to come up with instant solutions in the emotional turmoil of a sudden crisis.  The programs are based on research conducted by the Center for Aging in Place, the Medicare Rights Center and the End of Life Coalition.  Presenters represent these three groups. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments are served at 3:30; the presentation begins at 4:00

Where: Larchmont Avenue Church, 60 Forest Park Avenue, Larchmont.  Use the Forest Park door near Wendt Avenue to reach Russell Hall.


Out and About: Out and About: "Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends”
Wednesday, September 16

Our next Out and About program will be a guided tour of the marvelous John Singer Sargent exhibit, “Portraits of Artists and Friends” at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Save the date. Details will be posted soon.

Financial assistance is available to members who qualify: speak to Elaine in confidence.  Some of the expense of our Out And About series is offset by a generous contribution from the Morris and Florence Bender Foundation.

Where: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1000 Fifth Ave, New York, NY

Wednesday, September 30, 2:00 - 4:00pm

The next meeting of the At Home on the Sound Book Discussion Group will take place on September 30. The book will be The Art Forger, a literary thriller by Barbara A.

Thirteen works of art, worth over $500 million today, were stolen. The crime remains unsolved. Mamaroneck Librarian Lori Friedli will lead our discussion.
