Althia Ellis author of Coming Of Age at the Focal Point Having worked 14 years in a senior center, Althia Ellis has a lot of observations about the purpose of senior centers and how she might imagine her parents arriving at that stage in their lives. "I would like for them to be able to laugh, have fun, be active, enjoy life, and not be too concerned about the mundane things of this world." Ms. Ellis will share her thoughts on how to enhance the quality of life. Ellis' book, Coming of Age at the Focal Point, emphasizes the many resources that senior centers as well as other community groups provide that add value to the lives of older adults. She advocates for independence and dignity for older adults and promotes the importance of caring for, respecting, and honoring the elderly. Books available for sale and signing.
