‘Rightsizing’ open house planned

Suites at Rouse will have a “Rightsizing Open House” from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 10, aimed at meeting the needs of community members considering relocation to a personal care facility. The Suites will partner with local businesses and agencies who will offer information for individuals considering or preparing for a transition from their home to a personal care facility. Many times, individuals become overwhelmed at the thought of moving as they have a house and furniture to sell, clothing to donate and possessions to downsize. Representatives from real estate, auction and antique dealing, estate liquidation and more will help answer any questions participants may have. For more information about the open house, call the Suites at 563-1650 or email kwhitaker@rouse.org. There is no fee for this public event. Refreshments will be provided.
