How to Stay Independent as You Age
Learn, Laugh & Love Series
As we age, some things in life become more challenging. This workshop will share resources and strategies to help older adults live safely, with autonomy and dignity.
Older adults and their adult children are invited to start the discussion and understand the many options available that can help you more effectively plan for the challenges that may lie ahead.
