Aging in Place – Part I - Staying in Your Home
What are the practical, health and financial considerations that you need to consider in order to stay in your home as you grow older? What resources need to be researched and planned for? Will you need to move or modify your home? What community resources are available to help you stay home and independent longer? What sort of additional costs should one plan for? May also discuss some alternative ideas such as “Co-housing” or “Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (NORC)” if time allows. Free and open to the community.

Aging in Place – Part II - Independent and “Continuing Care Retirement Communities” (CCRC)
These communities are springing up all over and many are advertised like luxury, country club living for the rest of your life. Is that the reality? The offerings and contracts for such communities can be dizzying. And they vary from community to community. This might be a great option for you and --- it might not. Don’t sign on the bottom line without coming to this presentation to get the real scoop on all the fine print! Free and open to the community.

Aging in Place – Part III - Assisted Living and Nursing Facilities – What’s the Difference?
Many people believe that they can check into assisted living or a nursing home like they would a hotel. That’s typically not what happens. More often a medical crisis results in hospitalization and from the hospital, folks are discharged to a facility to help with “rehab.” Following rehab, decisions must be made about keeping the recovering, perhaps now frailer, patient safe and healthy. Can they go home? Learn about the differences between assisted living, memory care, health and rehabilitation facilities, and nursing facilities. Free and open to the community.Open to all.
