Gambling awareness education for senior citizens
Please join the Council on Aging and Cambridge Health Alliance, in welcoming Jodie Nealley, Outreach Coordinator at the Massachusetts Council on Compulsive Gambling, on Thursday, November 29 at 11 a.m. at the Connolly Center. Are you concerned for a loved one? Looking to gain more knowledge on the dangers of gambling and gambling addiction? Studies suggest that adults aged 65 and over are the fastest growing segment of the population and often have more time and money to spend on leisure activities such as gambling. At the talk you will learn how to encourage responsible gambling practices, prior to gambling activities. For more information, please call Dale at 617.394.2323 or Hugo at 617.591.6741. This program is sponsored by The Everett Foundation for the Aged.
