Senior Living Communities - 311422

Through this four-session panel discussion/lecture series on “Senior Living”, you will receive information meant to help you make informed decisions in the complex world of senior living. Being informed when you have a family member in need is the first step towards dignified aging. The first session: Is Senior Living Right for Me? will help you gain a better understanding of senior living options and when it is appropriate for you. The panel will discuss and define options ranging from in-home health care, independent living, assisted living, memory care and hospice. Our next session: The True Cost of Senior Living, will focus on the cost of senior care, what is covered…what is not, and how to get the most out of your life savings. On our third session, the panel will present: Independent vs Assisted Living, a discussion on differentiating between the different types of care, the marketing they use and how to decide which is best for you and what to expect once you have made a decision. The final night of this four-session discussion, Memory Care, will focus on options available to those with irreversible dementia/ Alzheimer’s disease. Panelists will provide information to help you get a better understanding of memory care communities and the services offered. This four-part series is being presented by InSight Senior Transitional Services (www.InSightSenior.com).

White Nights
The second in the highly acclaimed Shetland Island series featuring Inspector Jimmy Perez. The launch of an exhibition at The Herring House art gallery is disturbed by a stranger who bursts into tears, then claims not to remember who he is or where he comes from. The next day he is found dead. Set in midsummer, the book captures the unsettling nature of a landscape where the sun never quite sets and where people are not as they first seem.

The Woman in White
Art teacher Walter Hartright encounters a woman dressed in white on a moonlit road and later discovers she may have escaped from an insane asylum. From there, the plot twists and turns with elements of unrequited love, unhappy marriage, murder plots, the law, and some very shady financial dealings. Written in 1859, it is considered one of the earliest examples of the mystery genre and detective fiction and has been adapted to film, television and even a computer game.

Still Life
The first in the highly acclaimed Inspector Gamache series. Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, of the Surêté du Québec, and his team of investigators are called in to the scene of a suspicious death in the tiny hamlet of Three Pines, just north of the U.S. border. Jane Neal, a local fixture has been found dead in the woods. The locals are certain it’s a tragic hunting accident and nothing more, but Gamache smells something foul in these remote woods, and is soon certain that Jane Neal died at the hands of someone much more sinister than a careless bow hunter.
