November 2nd 11:00 am
BankGloucester Community Room (160 Main Street)

Often a home is an elder’s most valuable possession, financially and emotionally. A home is a huge source of security and comfort with familiar surroundings. Sadly, as a result of rising expenses, limited income and/or declining health, many seniors believe that they must sell their homes to meet their financial obligations. During the housing crisis (2007-2015), between 28-30% of those losing their homes were seniors. 

The good news is, there’s a wide array of support available!

Did you know?
