A forum and panel discussion on “What’s Next: Housing Options As We Age” is scheduled for Nov. 10.

“One of the most important concerns we face as we age is the question of where to live. Faced with the question of remaining in their homes versus moving, many people are unsure of what services and housing choices are available to help guide that choice,” said city councillor Henrietta Davis in an e-mailed press release. “This panel discussion aims to help frame the choices for individuals and Cambridge as a community. The speakers are knowledgeable about nonprofit, for profit and public housing as well as housing and elder services.”

The panel, which will take audience questions, includes Ann Bookman, a visiting scholar at Brandeis University and author of “Finding Elder Care resources in Massachusetts”; Allan Isbitz, vice president for real estate development at Jewish Community Housing for the Elderly; Gwen Noyes, a partner at Oaktree Development, a developer of multifamily and co-housing projects in Cambridge; Greg Russ, executive director of the Cambridge Housing Authority; Jim Stockard, board member of the authority and Affordable Housing Trust and an expert in affordable housing and community development; and Susan Stockard, vice president and director of resident services at Maloney Properties.

The event is to be held at the Cambridge Main Library, 449 Broadway, starting at 6 p.m. with a half-hour of refreshments.
