Proactive Aging: Arming Yourself with Knowledge
As you proactively plan for your future, participate in this interactive guided discussion with experts in the field. Thoughtful planning and follow-through can help avoid a crisis should health care or housing needs change or life events force decisions to be made quickly. This course is designed to present a list of options, considerations and professional services available to help you put a plan in place, ready to be implemented if needed. Topics will cover the benefits and care costs of remaining in your home; the services available should you decide to downsize and relocate; the differences in housing options; and costs between continuous care retirement communities, assisted living and small residential homes for modest incomes. One person registers in advance, a family member may register in class and attend at no cost. Moderator Deborah Bakalich is a member of Senior Care Lifestyles, a true one-stop senior care resource center. Melissa Barnickel, CPA, Principal of Baygroup Insurance, will be speaking on funding a long term care plan using insurance products.
