Greenwich Retired Men’s Association to Host Panel on Aging

The Greenwich RMA’s July 17 meeting will feature a panel on aging. Steven Katz, President of Sterling Home Health Care and chair of the Commission on Aging for the Town of Greenwich, will lead the panel discussion of local experts on different theories of successful aging and practical steps that may help us age well.

Discussions will focus on quality of life, behavioral adaptations, helpful resources, common stressors, and cognitive and physical wellbeing.

Katz will be joined by three health care professionals.
