    Do you have time to make some telephone calls and compile information?

    UWRA is in the process of updating a facility listing of venues available to hold UWRA luncheons, events, programs, and seminars. We have identified about 30 potential venues. The assistance needed is making telephone calls and updating the information on the worksheet. The information needed about each venue has been identified. Since this is invaluable information for our committees, quick completion is appreciated.

    As mentioned during the November 20th program (27 Stages of moving to a retirement community), the UWRA presentations on the continuum of care communities were March, 2017. This covered the communities who provided the 4 levels of care (independent, assisted, skilled & memory). The second presentation was January 2018 and covered those communities that provided three of the 4 levels.
