BROOKFIELD – A safety event for seniors will cover a variety of new topics, including an opportunity to ask questions about the Affordable Care Act to a local expert, at their Wednesday morning meeting.

Village Clerk Cathy Colgrass-Edwards said Bill Scanlon, of Riverside, will be there to explain as much as possible about the nationwide healthcare reform. Colgrass-Edwards said the section about Obamacare will be interesting for all people, but that the session will be geared in particular to those age 50 and over.

Colgrass-Edwards said representatives from Cantata Adult Living Services, the organization that runs the British Home and The Woodlands Assisted Living near the Brookfield Zoo, will be leading a discussion in Internet safety.

“(They will) be there explaining to people how they can avoid getting scammed on their computers,” Colgrass-Edwards said.

Colgrass-Edwards said representatives from the Brookfield Police and Fire Depts will also present at the event, which will be from 10 a.m. until noon on Wednesday. A continental breakfast will be provided.
