FULLERTON : Housing for Seniors Is Seminar Topic

Looking for the right retirement home or housing arrangement for an elderly relative?

USC gerontology professor Jon Pynoos will discuss a variety of housing options and the broad range of services and features available to senior citizens on April 10 at Cal State Fullerton.

“Housing is very important to older people,” said Rosalie Gilford, a sociology professor and coordinator of gerontology programs at the university. “It has a direct impact on the quality of their lives. . . .”

Gilford said the free seminar will examine available housing options, from living in one’s own home to living in senior complexes with central dining and social areas to nursing homes.

The event will be held from 12:30 to 3 p.m. on campus in the Ruby Gerontology Center’s Mackey Auditorium. To register, or for more information, call (714) 449-7057.
