This is a six part series about issues that older adults face as they age. Topics include making your home age-friendly, simple home repairs, caregiver support and options for other living arrangements. Expert presenters will include time for your questions.
➢ Monday, Nov 18: Your Housing Options – Navigating Future Choices – Dr. Laura O’Bryon and Monique Clark
Although surveys show that most older adults want to remain in their current homes, circumstances such as a significant change in mobility or health conditions can require consideration of alternate living arrangements. What factors should be taken into account in making decisions about different living arrangements? What choices are available in our area and how much do they cost?
