DAMARISCOTTA — The 5th annual Fall Aging in the Right Place Symposium “There’s No Place like Home “What Does the Future Hold”? will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Belvedere Road.

The event will be hosted by Spectrum Generations Coastal Community Center and the Knox County Aging and Disability Resource Center.

Both centers are on the cusp of a fundamental change in the way they view and respond to aging from a medical, legal and spiritual perspective, according to a news release from the Coastal center. The Third Age can be an especially contemplative one, a period of life when older adults may switch gears from focusing the day-to-day concerns of living, such as career and parenting, to contemplating the larger issues of life and pursuing a desire to give back.

Guest speakers Attorney Robert Gregory, Dr. Robert Hunold, DO, and the Rev. John Nieman will discuss how to bring all of these divergent thoughts together in one’s life time as one builds one’s team and brings them onboard.

Healthy breakfast snacks will be provided by Hannaford Brothers, Rising Tide Community Market, the Kennedy Learning Center and Cohen on the Meadows, the catering division of Spectrum Generations will be served. The program will begin at 9 a.m.

An optional soup and sandwich smorgasbord, prepared by Lincoln Healthcare services and Cohen on the Meadow Catering, can be reserved for $8 per person. Reservation deadline is noon Monday, Sept. 12. For more information, call 563-1363, visit www.spectrumgenerations/symposium_coastal.
