Brookline

Forum to examine needs of seniors

Continue reading below

A panel discussion exploring whether Brookline is prepared to house and serve its senior citizens over the next 20 years will convene at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Holiday Inn’s Whitney Hall at 1200 Beacon St. The free event is part of the town’s Age-Friendly Cities initiative. The panelists — Dorothy Kelly Gay, the director of government relations for Hebrew SeniorLife; Amy Schectman, president and chief executive officer of Jewish Community Housing; James Seagle Jr., president of Rogerson Communities; and the town’s Council on Aging director, Ruthann Dobek — will discuss how the number of Brookline residents between the ages of 55 and 65 years old grew by 40 percent between 2000 and 2010, and whether the town can house those residents over the next 20 years as their needs change. The event’s sponsors include the Board of Selectmen, several town agencies, and the Brookline Community Aging Network.
