Paying for Assisted Living: A Presentation for Seniors and Their Caregivers

September 14th • 6:00 – 7:30 pm ~ Malden Public Library

Families researching senior living options are often under pressure and time constraint and it can be difficult to weigh the value of one program or community over another under those conditions. With a better understanding of the structure and terminology of the assisted living industry, guests will be armed with clear and useful information that can aid in making an educated decision that will ultimately improve quality of life for themselves or their loved ones.

We will discuss commonly asked questions such as:

  • What is included in my monthly rent?
  • What’s the difference between a tiered and all inclusive pricing structure?
  • Who chooses assisted living?

Join us for light refreshments along with our presentation. Q&A will follow.

Please RSVP to info@forestdalepark.com or call 781.333.8903

Movie Night: Wed., Sept. 27th: 6:00-8:30pm

Join us for Movie Night on Wednesday, September 27, 2017, from 6:00-8:30 pm.  We will be showing a recent movie based on the DC Comics superhero, Wonder Woman.  The film stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, and Robin Wright and is directed by Patty Jenkins.

Before she became Wonder Woman, Diana (Gadot) was the princess of the Amazons and a trained warrior on a remote island paradise.  When a pilot (Pine) crashes his plane on the shore, Diana learns of a raging war in the outside world.  When she leaves her home, she discovers her full powers and her destiny as Wonder Woman.

Film Comment writes, “Wonder Woman is a spectacular delight,” and Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a 92% approval rating.  RogerEbert.com writes, “Gadot wonderfully inhabits the mix of curiosity, sincerity, badassery, and compassion that has undergirded Wonder Woman since the beginning…she evokes a classic heroism.”

This film is free and open to the public and is accessible.  Movie times are approximate.  Please call the Malden Public Library at 781-324-0218 for more information.  Rated PG-13 (141 min.)

September is Library Card Sign-up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the American Library Association and libraries nationwide join together to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.

A public library card is a ticket to free educational resources and activities. A library card provides access to a variety of in print and online digital media, including downloadable books, magazines, movies, music and more.

If you haven’t been to your local library lately, September is a great time for a visit.
