Elder care information, "Stepping Up and Speaking Out," meetings and more today in Lexington.
1. Everything You Always Wanted to Know About ElderCare But Didn't Know to Ask: Minuteman Senior Services, along with co-sponsors the the Lexington Department of Human Services and the Lexington Interfaith Clergy Association, present this program from 7 to 8:30 p.m. tonight at Cary Hall.
