Proactive Aging: Arming Yourself With Knowledge *NEW!*
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; the differences in housing options; and costs between continuous care retirement communities, assisted living and small residential homes for modest incomes. 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.

Using Mindfulness Meditation to Increase Happiness

We often think happiness is dependent on external factors. We suffer from the “if only” disease, looking for the next big thing that will finally make us happy. Mindfulness meditation gives you tools to create lasting happiness that does not rely on others. Explore how clinging to your attitudes and
possessions creates dissatisfaction and how love, kindness, generosity, and gratitude can help alter your outlook on life. Course includes meditation exercises and discussion. No previous meditation experience required. Instructor: Jerry Hartman.

Tuition: $59** (includes $40 in fees*)
