Meeting December 3, 2009

The meeting started by welcoming Andrew De'Franza and Lindsey Staveley from Turtle Creek/Turtle Woods. Andrew and Lindsey informed the group about the supportive housing model at Turtle Creek/Turtle Woods. Resident's have the option of an on site care manager from Senior Care, Inc. to conduct an assessment of their needs to remain living independently. If care is needed, Associated Home Care is available as an option. There is also a 24-hour attendant, available to all residents, if needed. The goal of having on site care is to promote and ensure if residents want to, they have the opportunity readily available to age in place.

Thank you Andrew and Lindsay for your informative presentation and for welcoming the group to Turtle Creek/Turtle Woods- the coffee was a nice addition!

The group then discussed the upcoming group: Clutter Bugs. The first meeting, possibly first two meetings, will focus on gathering information from attendees and allow those that attend the chance to brainstorm and let us know what they need from a group.

The 1st brainstorming meeting of Clutter Bugs will be held on January 19th at 10 a.m. at the Senior Center. Please let Laurie know if you would like a flyer e-mailed or mailed to you. A second date, if needed, has been set for February 8th at 3 p.m.

The next Beverly Hoarding Task Force Meeting will be held on Thursday, February 11th at 9 a.m. at the Beverly Council on Aging

So far agenda items for that meeting include: Discussion of information gained from Clutter Bug meeting (s), we are inviting a speaker from the Cape Anne Time Bank to join us, items to add to our financial resources list, and time for roundtable discussion.
