This page was previously devoted to the many facilitated conversations programs for the Over 55s offered by Holyoke Community College during the last several years. Their offerings have since morphed. What remains are two programs, offered twice yearly which I highly recommend: the elder law program with Karen Jackson, and social security strategies with Susan Allen.
A variety of programs and support groups exist at most senior centers. Check them out or make your request. If local to Western Massachusetts, email me (email@example.com) for local schedules of which I become aware.
