The High Bridge Green Team (part of the High Bridge Environmental Committee) would like to plan a community-wide presentation on caring for the elderly. Presenters will be experts in the field, such as members of the Hunterdon Medical Center. It will target senior citizens, as well as children and friends of seniors.
Before we go further with our plans, we would like to gather some information on what topics you might like to see in this presentation. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey found here.
