Are you looking for more choices as you or your parents age? In 1999, this question was the inspiration for a group of friends in the Boston area, and it resulted in what is now known nationwide as ‘The Village Movement.’

Stay at Home in Wilton is a member of the national Village to Village Network, and since it was founded in 2010 the group has grown to almost 100 members.

On Monday, Feb. 13, the Wilton Library and Stay at Home in Wilton are hosting an event from 5-6 p.m., called “Improving the Experience of Aging.” It will feature a live-streamed, national simulcast of Dr. Atul Gawande, renowned surgeon and bestselling author of Being Mortal, who will speak about the value of community and opportunities as we grow older.

A reception with drinks and hors d’oeuvres will follow for this special celebration. Registration is highly recommended, and interested attendees can register online or call 203.762.6334.

Wilton Library is located at 137 Old Ridgefield Rd..
