Brown Bag Lunch Presentation with Julie Andre, Area 1 Agency on Aging: Learn about the global trend of homesharing and what it looks like locally. We will explore the reasons behind the growing interest, especially for people who wish to age in place. We will also discuss concerns and challenges around letting a stranger into one’s home and safeguards and strategies for a successful homeshare arrangement.

Area 1 Agency on Aging (A1AA) provides leadership and services that support people in ways that promote healthy aging. A1AA envisions a community where older persons and those with disabilities know about and have access to resources that promote their quality of life.

In February 2020, Julie Andre became the Northcoast Homeshare program coordinator at the Area 1 Agency on Aging. Since 2007, she has served and worked locally in different capacities as support to a diversity of vulnerable populations aged 0 to 92.
