You don't want to miss this!
And, you should tell all of your friends and loved ones to check it out too.
We all think it won't happen to us, but then it does - our family members age and we need to jump in and help out. Find out everything you need to know in this one great place.
One of the toughest decisions that senior citizens face is whether to stay at home and age in place or move to another setting for their golden years. In our discussion we will cover what aging in place means, what options you have and what are the pros and cons of those options.
Tuesday's at 10 is a women's discussion group at Havenwood Heritage Heights a Continuing Care Retirement Community in Concord NH. This was a private event, for residents only, so this event posting was put up postevent.
This is the fabulous CCRC that Donna raves about in her sessions as one of the best decisions you can make for yourself and your family. Per their invitation, Donna went back to revisit her old stomping grounds with bells on.
She shared with them (per their request) who she really is - not what she does - and how she came to be the person she is. It was a fun morning full of hugs, smiles and hearfelt sharing.
Thank you all for being some of the most sensational women I have ever met!
Love to you all!
So you’ve noticed that things aren’t going so well at home for your loved one and you need to start thinking about alternative scenarios. This comprehensive class will take you from the initial assessment and research all the way through visits, evaluations, conversations and right up to the actual move.
Beginning on Wednesday, September 7th, 2016 through November 9th, 2016 we will meet weekly – online – and cover the following topics:
Week one: We begin at the beginning, by figuring out where they are at so we know where to begin looking at options. What do I mean by where they are at? Well, I mean are they capable of living independently? Do they need Assisted Living? Specialized, Secure Memory Care? Or even a higher level of care than that? How much money do they have to be able to pay for it and so on.
Week two: Looking at Options.
Week three: Visiting Places. Where to look, what to ask, what to pay attention for, etc.
Week four: How to speak with them about all of this.
Week five: Warming them up to the idea, to visit the options and to making the potential lifestyle change.
Week six: Getting things in order
Week seven: Dealing with “stuff”
Week eight: Creating your plan, timeframe, etc.
Week nine: Handling the other people in our lives
Week ten: Lining up the move or other transition
One of the toughest decisions that senior citizens face is whether to stay at home or move to a community or other setting for their “Golden years.” Wherever you live you will either “Age in Place” or move through a series of situations that meet your needs along the way as you age.
In our discussion we will cover what “Aging in Place” means, what options you have and what are the pros and cons of those options.
Each person faces their own unique set of circumstances. We all face decisions in our own way, with the information we have gathered over our lives influencing us. We also have people in our lives influencing us.
In the end, it is our decision. To make the right decision we need to look at more information so we are fully informed and can truly decide what is in our best interests. How do we want to live in what should be the finest years of our lives?
