Gracefully Navigating the Aging Process~:

This interest group if proposed for those who want to be proactive in planning for the aging process, whether it be for a loved one or one’s self.

Harvard studies in 2017 showed that one in five Americans – nearly 80 million people- will be older than 65 within the next 20 years, and they will want to live in their home as soon as possible.

Who will pay for this? Medicare, the VA, Private insurance, Long Term Care Insurance, etc.

In order to make sound decisions, we all need to be educated and have a plan. As an example, preparing ahead of time when no one in the household has limited mobility, can lower the financial and emotional cost of these changes. To be proactive, during a bathroom remodel, adding a walk -in shower can eliminate the need for one later, when time is of the essence. Planning ahead can reduce stress later.

This group will share personal experiences, lessons learned, and success stories of gracefully aging in place. Our goal is to bring in experts in the areas that we are most interested in learning from. We will explore many different facets including: how to stay healthy in mind, spirit and body, how to take care of our skin, reducing isolation when you lose a spouse or partner, and together we will be prepared to age gracefully.
