(Recently moved out of a basement apartment that had mold.) Employed full time. Seeking affordable housing in Montgomery County (ha!) Can’t even afford MoCo MPDU 1 bedroom units. Trying to navigate affordable housing options is a challenge. Thanks for any advice or leads. Contact: calmcatmurray@gmail.com

12:48:39     From  Gail Hubberman   to   All panelists : What do people do who cannot afford assisted living and do not have family to offer help. I have had these situations and would like to connect them with an agency for help. Can you suggest nonprofit groups that offer assistance with this?

12:56:56     From  deb merriner : Very timely presentation as we are trying to place two of our clients (twins) in a community and they are on the younger side.  It's a challenge for sure.  Thanks for the great info! Deb Merriner, Buckley's for Seniors, 703-390-0535, Premium Companion Care, Concierge, Transportation and Care Management

12:58:28     From  Bree Baldwin : One challenge is people do not have a one-stop shop for ALL of this information (like the SHIP office in every state). There are many great programs, good ideas, motivated advocates, but people need to know where to find it all in one place (not only a website, but an old-school 800 number which reaches a more diverse group of inquirers). Bree Baldwin, Aging Life Care Manager with Debra Levy Eldercare Associates-bbaldwin@care-manager.com

12:59:09     From  Catherine Murray : Thanks for the shout out Steve and yes, I've looked on SilverNest. Thanks for everyone's input.
