Are you interested in utilizing a senior living home in Grangeville? Charlotte Carlson will be hosting a meeting Jan. 19 to discuss this.

“Do you have parents who do not require assisted living, but may not be safe or content living alone? Many wrestle with this concern,” Carlson said.

She said she is considering converting the former B&B on S.E. 1st Street to just such a residence for seniors, but would appreciate input from the community about the needs and expectations involved in providing this type of Christian environment on a private pay basis.

The meeting is set for Sunday, Jan. 19, 7 p.m., at 234 S. E. 1st Street, Grangeville. RSVP to 208-983-4383.
