Whether you live alone or are currently married/partnered, the best time to ensure you have everything in place for a successful aging process is when you don't yet need the services and accommodations you might need in the future. So join Cantor Pamela Siskin and Alison Solomon, LCSW for a two-part workshop entitled Aging Alone Together. We'll have presentations, a panel, breakout discussion groups and plenty of time to schmooze over lunch.

A social worker and psychotherapist by profession, Alison Solomon has worked extensively in the Jewish community, both as a clinical director and consultant for several Jewish Family Services agencies and as a lay leader for a Jewish congregation in Mexico. She has taught graduate psychology and been published in numerous professional texts. Her specialties include older adult mental health, trauma, and the LGBTQ community. She is also the author of four suspense novels.
