About the Event

More and more retirees of all ages are relocating to active adult and retired independent living communities all around the country.  You may be considering such a move yourself, but just aren’t sure what the fuss is all about! 

During this 90-minute panel discussion, you will learn the facts about local 55+ independent living options from some of the most knowledgeable and experienced professionals in our area.  We will cover locations, amenities, and costs for both purchase and lease options for those 55 and older.  Whether you are a recent retiree, mature elder, or a family member helping aging relatives, this seminar is designed to provide you with practical and actionable information.

As always, we want to empower you with the STRAIGHT TALK about senior living communities and shorten your learning curve as you navigate the many options available.
