Most people would prefer to stay in their own homes as long as possible. But, the challenge is knowing how to do so successfully. An increasing number of resources and programs are now available to help seniors manage risks and age in place. This seminar will educate you on the financial, social, and emotional aspects related to aging in place, as well as helpful resources and strategies for planning ahead and bolstering independence. You will also learn about the “village movement”: community-based membership organizations that provide a network of services and programs intended to help seniors age in their homes with dignity and independence.
