Free to All: 14th Annual Elder Care Tour

Welcome to the 14th annual Elder Care Tour, an award-winning, one-of-a-kind event in Central Kentucky sponsored by Lexington Family Magazine.

Aging can present special challenges to the whole family, especially when a loved one is no longer able to live alone.

The Tour is designed to help families address these issues before a crisis hits.

This is your chance to be prepared.

On Sunday, Nov. 9, from 1:30-5 p.m., participating retirement communities in Central Kentucky will host free open houses.

The open houses are designed to let older adults, their adult children and other caregivers educate themselves about elder care housing options in a relaxed, unpressured atmosphere.

Plus, tour visitors this year can enter to win one of three Gaylord Opryland Vacation Packages. (For details, please see Page 4.)

Info: or 223-1765.
