The Paper Chase

Edgewood Communities on the Lutheran Campus in Jamestown is beginning its third year of hosting the Best of Times Seminar Series. Janell Sluga, Geriatric Care Manager Certified with Senior Life Matters, will present a seminar on organizing documents. “The Paper Chase – What Documents to Keep and What to Toss” will be held on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. in the Chapel located in the Lutheran Home and Rehabilitation Center at 715 Falconer St. There is no charge, and reservations are not necessary.

“We had an overwhelmingly positive response to this seminar last time and decided to offer it again,” Sluga said. “Households receive tons of mail, email, and work-related documents. Most people are not sure what to keep for a month, a year or forever. It all piles up and can be overwhelming.”

She will review the different types of documents and the suggested length of time to keep them, as well as offer organizing tips on how to sort, file and store them.

“There are so many options for storage,” she said. “We have great ideas for both large and small spaces.”

The Best of Times Seminar Series is sponsored by Edgewood Communities at Lutheran and is focused on providing information and support to help people plan well so they can age well. Edgewood Communities is located on the Lutheran Campus off Falconer Street in Jamestown.

Units include one- and two-bedroom apartments, duplex homes and the new Smartment Building. For more information about the seminar or Lutheran Housing, call 720-9122 or log onto
