The CMRPC Legislative Affairs Breakfast is intended for advocacy/education and networking around one theme or topic. The topic for the December 7, 2018 event will focus on “Planning for Healthy Aging.” The purpose is to gain a deeper understanding of related issues, and provide attendees with resources, best practices, ideas, and case studies to help them better serve their communities. The event will include breakfast and networking, brief discussion from legislators and members of the CMRPC Legislative Affairs Committee, followed by a moderated panel discussion with various experts from the Commonwealth. The panel discussion will include representatives from the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs, Massachusetts Healthy Aging Collaborative, and the Sturbridge Senior Center. Experts will discuss the longevity economy and opportunities for communities or organizations to engage and support older adults, such as opening a Memory Café in the senior center. Other topics to be covered include the Governor’s Council to Address Aging, the recent Mass Alzheimer's and Dementia Act, AARP resources, and available grant opportunities. Only the moderated discussion portion of the event (1 hour) is eligible for CM Credits.
