In an evening talk at the Truro Meeting House on July 26 at 7 PM, Barry Bluestone, Stearns Trustee Professor of Political Economy, Northeastern University, will be joined by Truro selectperson Maureen Burgess to discuss results of the recent Truro Senior Survey. Admission is free to the general public.
Bluestone worked with Truro’s Council on Aging to help design the survey’s 41 questions and the answers that were received from over 450 elders. Top concerns were improved access to health care and transportation. Burgess will comment on the survey as well as speak to what elders need for aging in place, including transportation services available locally and regionally as well as home adaptions to enhance access and mobility for people with diverse abilities.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Truro Meeting House, the program is the fourth in a series called “Keeping Truro Sustainable: Planning for Truro’s Future” developed by Truro Connections. Truro Connections is a cultural partnership founded by the Friends of the Truro Meeting House, the Truro Historical Society, the Truro Center for the Arts and the Payomet Center for the Performing Arts.
The Truro Meeting House is located on Town Hall Hill near Town Hall at 3 First Parish Lane.
