About the Event

The truth is not everyone will move into a senior community.  For those who choose to stay at home or live with family, this class will help you plan ahead for possible future care needs, identify resources, and explore the costs associated with aging in place.  Get tips and tools for creating a safe and accessible home.  You’ve decided to stay in your home – now what? Are you prepared? Have you taken steps to equip yourself and your residence for the long haul?  Learn the pros and cons about aging-in-place during this 90-minute lively and informative panel discussion.

Our expert panelists will share with you some of the most effective strategies and resources available for living safely and independently in your home as you get older.  Learn about precautions you can take to ensure that YOU remain in control of your lifestyle choices and decisions.  Whether you choose to ‘stay put’ in your current home or move to one more manageable, if you are 62 or older, you have options – lots of them!  The challenge: Knowing which options are right for you!
