About the Event

The costs associated with living a long life often seem to be a moving target, but the more you know, the better you can plan.  In this session we will compare the projected costs associated with living at home versus in a senior community.  We will look at the various transportation options and costs, as well as community services and local resources available to seniors on a budget.  Are you a Veteran?  There is a program that may be available to you.  How do Medicare and Medicaid fit into your long-term plans?
