As people grow older, their needs change, and it can be difficult for older adults to remain independent without community programs and support. This is the subject of a virtual program being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
This program is called Aging Alone and is being presented by presented by Family and Consumer Sciences Agent Denise Dias of the Johnson County K-State Extension Office. Participants will learn the definition of singletons, explore basic needs as people age, and discover a checklist of how they can help.
To find this program in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first 50 Plus and then under enrichment and special interests. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “special interest.”
Aging Alone will take place beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 14. The cost for this one-hour session is $5 per person for Johnson County residents or $6 for nonresidents. All registered participants will receive an email with a Zoom link and instructions on how to proceed. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359.

While JCPRD’s 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the 50 Plus Department at (913) 826-2975 for space availability.
