Aging Solo Series Spring 2018
Wednesday, April 4 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm| $75
Are you aging without a family member or close friend who could take on the role of your caregiver or health care decision-maker? Do you need to build – or rebuild – a social network? Concerned about housing and finances?
This Take Charge/Age Well Academy workshop series is designed for older adults who want tools, strategies, and support to age successfully.
Aging Solo, a Take Charge/Age Well Academy five-session workshop series, provides tools, strategies, and support for older adults to age successfully even when they do not have a family member or close friend who could take on the role of caregiver or health care decision-maker.

Each session will include conversation, personalized check-ins, and assignments.
