Special Interests

Ask the Professionals: An Aging in Place Panel Discussion *NEW*

This course will be an interactive guided discussion with experts in the field of aging on topics of importance when proactively planning for the future.

As baby boomers age, it is important to take steps early to have a plan in place should health care or housing needs change or life events force decisions to be made quickly. Thoughtful planning and follow through can help avoid a crisis. This course is designed to present a list of options, considerations, and professional services available to help you put a plan in place to be ready to implement if needed.

Topics will cover the benefits and care costs of remaining in the home and services available should you decide to downsize and relocate. Learn the differences in housing options and costs between continuing care retirement communities, assisted living, and small residential homes for modest incomes. There will be an overview on Medicaid, Veteran’s Benefits, and Legal Planning.

One person registers in advance, a family member may register in class and attend at no cost.

Moderator Deborah Bakalich is a member of Senior Care Lifestyles, a true “one-stop” senior care resource service.

Tuition: $49 (includes $40 in fees*)

Introduction to Self-Defense Principles *NEW*
This course is based on a real world program used by military, law enforcement and professional security personnel to teach enhanced skills for personal safety and self-defense. It will include a discussion of strategies for reducing your risk of becoming a “target”, practicing situational awareness, and being alert to and recognizing circumstances that may be clues to a potential problem. In today’s world of distractions (cell phone, busy agendas, etc.), it is easy to be inattentive to your surroundings. This course will encourage you to focus and learn self-defense management strategies. Note: the class is offered in a discussion format, not physical training. Instructor Dan Murphy is a former military and law enforcement professional.
