Are you thinking about the future and the quality of life you will have? Do you have an elderly family member who is having trouble living on his or her own?
Are you overwhelmed by the discussions and decisions that need to be made for the ongoing care or supervision of your loved one?
A free seminar series, “The Transition Dilemma: A 4-Part Series on Aging,” is being offered at Maplewood at Newtown, 166 Mt Pleasant Road, to explore the questions, options, challenges, as well as solutions and resources for elder care. Attorney Kathy Boufford, one of the event’s organizers, describes the event as an opportunity for the community to gain a wealth of valuable information in a short period of time.
“The number of issues that the aging population — and their adult children — face is overwhelming,” she said in a release.
“The idea behind the seminar series is to identify the challenges, briefly address the possible solutions and provide local resources for any follow-up action the attendees wish to take. Professionals in the areas of finance, law, insurance, managed care, health and grief recovery will be present.”
Although the series is taking place at Maplewood at Newtown, event organizers want to emphasis that many types of care for the elderly will be discussed.
The seminars will take place Thursdays, March 20 to April 10, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm each week. Three speakers per evening are scheduled for a total of 12 professional presentations.
Attendees may choose to attend as many or as few of the seminars that fit their schedule and interest. Light refreshments will be served.
Reservations are requested by contacting Janene Grabowski at 203-209-5976 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ms Grabowski is quick to point out that, “Our community, and others like us, may not be the right choice for everyone. Our focus for this series is education — to aid in the next step in navigating senior living options.”
