Aging with Grace in Your Age-Friendly Home
Aging with Grace is an educational forum presented annually by Viva Village.
This year, the four virtual sessions addressed practical modifications for home safety and better livability.
Online presentations from local companies and organizations provided valuable and relevant information.
Recordings of these sessions are available below.
Viva Village gives a special thanks to our collaborators:
