Living Well in Your Lifetime Home

Our homes typically don’t change much day to day and year to year, but we do. The home that we enjoyed years ago may now cause us worry when going about our day. Let’s talk about how to create a space where we can live and thrive despite health changes.

This session will feature presentations from three industry experts:

  • Gabby Koontz, principal of Rendered Homes, provides design concept and floor plan services, specializing for over 18 years in the kitchen and bath layout and 3D renderings.
  • Amy Homan DePoy, OT/L, founder and owner of Cardinal Care, LLC. is a licensed Occupational Therapist with 31 years of experience working in various rehabilitation settings and with a wide range of diagnoses and challenges affecting everyday living.
  • Charles Hendricks is a father, architect, and Rotarian. His firm, Gaines Group Architects, focuses on using design to build a better community, enhance livability, reduce construction and operation costs, and protect the environment.

All three speakers are certified aging in place specialists.

Harm Reduction Workshop

Sarah Sommer from the Virginia Department of Health presents this important workshop on Harm Reduction. Opioids are a type of medication that are prescribed to help with pain. These medications are effective but also have the ability to be misused unintentionally. Join Central Shenandoah Health District to learn more about opioids, the impact they have in our communities and how to safely store and dispose of them. After the presentation there will be an opportunity to take a 5-10 minute training on the opioid overdose reversal medication, Naloxone, and receive a free box for your first aid kit.

July 25, 1-2 p.m. - Maury River Senior Services, Buena Vista
