York Hospital’s Center for Older Adults will present a lunch and learn program, “Depression & Anxiety in Older Adults,” on Friday, April 21, from 12–1 p.m., in the Community Room at the Wells Public Library, located at 1434 Post Road in Wells. Brandon Rivard, PA-C, will discuss the differences between depression, anxiety, and dementia, how these disorders present themselves in the aging population, their effects on memory and thinking, and how to mitigate the effects.

The presentation will be followed by a question-and-answer session and complimentary boxed lunches will be available to go. Lunches should be consumed outside the building rather than in a congregate setting inside the library. In keeping with hospital policies, masks will be supplied for all attendees, regardless of vaccination status.

Space is limited. To reserve your spot, sign up via Eventbrite or visit, call York Hospital’s Community Relations Office at (207) 351-2385, or email [email protected].
