Empowered Aging Talk Looks at End of Life Concerns

Santa Barbara Village and the University Club of Santa Barbara will present a talk on End of Life Concerns and Care: Reflections and Conversations 2-3 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8, at the University Club of Santa Barbara, 1332 Santa Barbara St.

The event is part of the free Empowered Aging Monthly Lecture Series held the second Tuesday of each month at the University Club. Seating is limited, so reservations must be made prior to the scheduled presentation.

Featured speaker Susan P. Plummer is executive director of The Alliance for Living and Dying Well.

The alliance is a collaboration of leaders and agencies committed to creating high-quality end-of-life care and to shifting our culture toward greater acceptance of death as an inextricable part of living well.

The August session is expected to be educational and experimental. Participants will explore what quality of life means to them, what really matters, and how life can be lived fully.

Evidence-based research and other resources on the importance of end-of-life conversations will be provided.
Santa Barbara Village is a nonprofit, virtual community of seniors and volunteers helping each other one successfully age-in-place in Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria.

One of some 200 virtual villages across the nation, Santa Barbara Village delivers a blend of support, services, volunteering and social opportunity that builds community while keeping area seniors engaged.

Carol Spungen, advisory board member said, “The Empowered Aging Series is a way to provide educational opportunities to help seniors stay current, knowledgeable and involved in their communities.

"We are excited to partner with the University Club of Santa Barbara to share relevant topics."

To make reservations by Monday, Aug. 7, for the Aug. 8 lecture, or for more information about Santa Barbara Village and the Empowered Aging Monthly Lecture Series, contact coordinator Cyndi Pipes, 729-5038, or email [email protected]

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
