Robson Reserve was the perfect host for this summer’s Neighbors Who Care Aging Made Easier Summer Speaker Series on Thursdays in June.

Thanks to knowledgeable speakers from, Hospice of the Valley, Phoenix ER, and Mountain View Funeral Home and Cemetery speaking on a variety of important topics such as Extended Care Planning and Living with Chronic Illness.
