(Postponed) Aging Solo Series: Spring 2020 (FULL)
Wednesday, March 11 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until Wednesday, April 22, 2020
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 or legal planning?
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 six-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.
Participants will learn from Iona’s staff and other trusted experts on how to navigate the opportunities and challenges of aging solo through presentations that offer advice, coaching, and guidance on critical decision-making and planning for the future. Each session will include conversation, personalized check-ins, and assignments. View flyer here.
