Ask the Professionals: An Aging in Place Panel Discussion
As you proactively plan for your future, participate in this interactive guided discussion with experts in the field. Thoughtful planning and follow-through can help avoid a crisis should health care or housing needs change or life events force decisions to be made quickly. This course is designed to present a list of options, considerations, and professional services available to help you put a plan in place, ready to be implemented if needed. Topics will cover the benefits and care costs of remaining in your home, the services available should you decide to downsize and relocate and the differences in housing options and costs between continuous 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 center.

Climate Change: Impact and Solutions *NEW*
This course is a more in depth look at climate change as first presented in the winter course Climate Change: Already in Your Neighborhood. Take a closer look at climate’s impact on weather, human and animal well-being, agriculture, food and water security and even your home garden. The good news is that there are tools available right now that will help us all adapt to climate change. Along with presentations and discussions of the solutions that are possible at the state, local and individual/family levels, you will consider the economic and social cost/benefit of climate action. There will be ample opportunity in each session to discuss and ask questions.
NOTE: The one-session class (XE-702) is not a pre-requisite for this class. This course will provide additional detail without being redundant. Instructor: Sara Via, Ph.D.
