Living Longer, Living Smarter
- Your Home and Community & Your Health: Thursday, February 11 from 1pm to 2pm
- Your Wishes & Your Finances: Thursday, February 18 from 1pm to 2pm
These workshops help you actively prepare for your future and the need for long-term care. This program is presented as a series of four 30-minute workshops.
Your Health – You need to stay healthy to live life to the fullest both now and in the future. Learn how your ability to live well is impacted by family health history, lifestyle modifications and types of health insurance.
Your Home and Community – Assess whether your home and community can support your changing needs. Will your home help or hinder your quality of life as you age? Does your community offer sufficient access via public transit or shared ride services to help residents connect with social activities, jobs, health care, and other important services?
Your Finances – Learn about retirement income and the cost of long-term care. Will you have enough assets to cover our increasing lifespans? Remember, Medicare usually only pays for medical care, not for long term care services and supports around the home.
Your Wishes – Consider how you want your medical care and finances handled if you’re unable to make decisions. What have you already put into writing and what needs to be decided or updated?
