Summer Doings at Capabilities

While summer is generally a quieter time for seminars and workshops, we find ourselves this year with a terrific line up of special events in July and August. Of course, you can always check our the latest in our Events section of the website, but we thought we would give you a teaser on a few of the headliners coming up.

July 21 features Sally Allen, our guest blogger this week. Sally offers a free workshop on how to manage your "stuff," keeping in mind just how precious all that stuff really is.

On July 29 our space fills with a group of Denver area psychics who offer readings for the low price of $5. They used our space in April and June to see what kind of "energy" they would find here. We are happy to report they called it "fabulous," and are meeting here on a more regular basis. Come in for a terrific evening! And consider holding your meetings here in our great "energy" space.

August 3 brings another low vision seminar to Capabilities, one of our most popular events. Dr. Paul Cutarelli of Cutarelli Vision, brings his expertise as a corneal and cataract surgeon to the table. He also will discuss non-invasive treatments for dry eyes, a common issue as we age. Immediately following the event, Ron Demske, the vision expert from Eschenbach, the worldwide manufacturer and distributor of high quality magnification, will meet with individuals to explore magnification solutions. This segment is by appointment only, so be sure to make your reservations to meet with Ron.

On August 10 our colleagues, Debbie Reinberg and John Rymers of ELDEResolutions in Denver, host a workshop for families to help ease the difficult conversations they have with and about elders. Watch for Debbie's blog on Resolving Family Issues coming up in our next newsletter!

And on August 18, Bonnie Price, Founder of, a community for and about women of a certain age, comes to Capabilities to speak about reinventing instead of retirement. A reception with libations and other treats follows her presentation. This has the makings of a great summer evening out! By the way, I write for Read my articles on caregiving.
