Talented Granny Hunt Visits Northridge

Competition is aimed to raise awareness of the need to plan for long-term care.

A nationwide search for America's most talented grannies stopped in Northridge this week.

The competition, coupled with a long-term care awareness tour, was held at The Emeritus at Northridge, a retirement community at 17650 Devonshire St.

Non-profit group 3in4 Association and its spokesperson, elder care expert and author Dr. Marion Somers, recently partnered with Emeritus to launch the “Bring Your Talent” contest.

The winner will receive one free year of rent at any Emeritus community, with 11 runners-up each receiving one free week. The objective of the contest is to raise awareness about the need for Americans to better prepare for their long-term health care needs.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, nearly 70 percent of Americans over 65 will need some form of long-term care. Yet most are unprepared for its financial and emotional impact.

Anyone across the country can still enter through Facebook on the Emeritus Senior Living page. Visit FreeRentGiveaway.com for more information.
