Will where you live affect your quality of life as you age? International conference speaker and author, Rhonda Latreille, MBA, CPCA, will share how the psychology and dynamics of aging creates a critical imperative for planning where we choose to age and how this will greatly impact our quality of life. Inspired by the successful United Nations endorsed Age-Friendly City and Rural Communities initiatives; Rhonda founded an organization that elevates the needs and customer experience for people 45+.
Says CARP Chapter #48 Chair and veteran Langley Township Councillor, Kim Richter: “Designing communities so people can age in place is of critical and growing importance in the South Fraser region. We need people to stay in our communities as they age because their contributions to the development of our communities are what have made, and will continue to make, the South Fraser such a vital and dynamic area to live, work, and play.”
“CARP is an important advocacy agency for issues affecting the aging population. We need their voice here to help ensure that our Zoomer and seniors’ issues will not be overlooked as our communities continue to grow and expand.”
At this same free public event, South Fraser OnTrax Co-Founder Nathan Pachal will speak on the linkage between where we live and our transportation needs moving forward as people age. South Fraser OnTrax is a sponsor of this CARP South Fraser Chapter #48 event. Everyone is welcome to participate and you do not have to be a member of CARP to attend. Door prizes will be given away and a social time with free refreshments will follow the meeting.
