This presentation will focus on how to view aging in place planning as an opportunity. We will discuss simple strategies to implement to prepare for your independence including organizing, assessing your home, and assessing your support. We will also address available resources for aging alone to assist with decision making so that bill paying, caregiving, and home modifications for example are addressed.

Should We Go or Should We Stay

Wednesday, October 5, 2022 at 1pm

This presentation will focus on four major considerations when evaluating whether or not to age in place in your current home. Interdependence, the period between complete independence and dependent living is discussed. It is at this time that we may need assistance with tasks such as administrative, organization or home maintenance and obtaining this help will enable us to live on our own in our home for as long as possible.
