SOUTHGATE HOSTS MLCRA MEETING

SOUTHGATE HOSTS MLCRA MEETING

Southgate hosted a meeting of the Massachusetts Life Care Residents’ Association (MLCRA) in November.   Residents from Southgate and four other retirement communities in Central Massachusetts attended the day-long event.

Michael Festa, State Director for AARP Massachusetts, spoke to meeting participants in the morning.  He discussed social security, Medicare and other issues of interest to seniors.  He answered audience questions on a range of subjects.

Mr. Festa’s speech was followed by a working lunch.   Participants were assigned to small tables to discuss a specific topic with representatives of other communities.     Among the topics covered were legislative issues, ideas for MLCRA’s newsletter,   the use of electronic communication in our communities, and information about the variety of cultural and educational programs offered at our communities.

At the end of the day, each group reported the results of its discussion and made recommendations for possible MLCRA action.
