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.

Joseph Berger: A Return to PolandJoseph Berger: A Return to Poland
Monday, September 28, 3:30 - 5:00pm

Please note that our program will take place on a Monday this week.  Earlier this year reporter Joe Berger visited his parents' hometowns in Poland and Ukraine and wrote a cover story for the New York Times Travel section.  On the visit, he discovered what he felt was a new Poland, very different from the backward country his parents -survivors of the Holocaust- had told him about.  He encountered the seeds of a Jewish revival. Poland, a land which in Jewish minds is steeped in tragedy, is revealing a more promising face, one of atonement and healing. Joe will talk about the places he visited, including Warsaw, Auschwitz, Krakow and Treblinka, and his surprising observations. 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.

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. Shapiro.  Called an “an intelligent, cleverly plotted page-turner,” the novel revolves around the 1990 art heist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Thirteen works of art, worth over $500 million today, were stolen. The crime remains unsolved. Mamaroneck Librarian Lori Friedli will lead our discussion. Open to At Home on the Sound members and volunteers.
