WILMINGTON- The Aging in Place Initiative has been hosting an ongoing summer program of Thursday afternoon lectures/roundtable discussions, on subjects of interest to elders as well as just about anyone else.

The discussions are in the Community Room of the St. Mary’s in the Mountains on Route 9 east, and will run through September.

On August 31, David Warner and Abby Eldridge from Senior Solutions, which used to be called the Council on Aging, will explain long term care insurance and all that fine print in the contract. This is a resource that seniors might not need to know right now but will become invaluable in a crisis.

On September 7, Nicki Steel, a local nature photographer and artist, will present her archive of photographs taken from late May 2016 through May 2017 of the birth and development of 13 baby blue herons deep in Marlboro, requiring 12 hikes to their habitat.

September 14 will be focused on green burial and home funerals. These are allowed in Vermont and local funeral home director, Mark Shea, from Covey and Allen, will talk about it with Michelle Acciavatti, an end-of-life specialist and founder of Ending-Well Vermont, located in Montpelier.
