The first Aging in Place National Planning day is next week, and local organizers are hosting a symposium  in Botetourt County. Chris Moore is director of education for the Western and Central Virginia Aging in Place Council. He says with 10,000 people turning 65 every day, the U.S. is facing a “silver tsunami.”

Moore says people interested in ideas on being able to stay in their homes as they age are invited to the free symposium at the Greenfield Center in Daleville Thursday, October 16 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Vendors who specialize in aging in place services are also invited to participate.
