The photo above is 100 years old. How old are you? Montana Centenarians are being honored during the 50th annual Governor's Conference on Aging next week. The September 25-27 sessions in Helena will honor the elder population at an afternoon banquet at 4 p.m. Tuesday. The 2010 census showed 175 people age 100 or older in the state. And with the retirement population growing at a fast rate, by the year 2025, Montana should have over 3,000 centenarians, according to the Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services.
The conference will tackle a host of topics including Alzheimers, exercise, meal-planning, stocks and bonds, tips for caregivers, readers theater, power of attorney, and how to build an Age Friendly Community. All the sessions will be at the Delta Hotel, formerly the Radisson on Colonial Drive in Helena. For more information, call (406) 444-6061.
