Blueprint for Successful Aging in Place: General Overview
2 sessions, 6 hours
When asked, everyone quickly says “Don’t put me in a Nursing Home!”. You want to age with dignity and remain living independently as long as you can, but what are you doing to plan for the problems that you will encounter? This 2-day Survey Class will provide basic information about a variety of decisions and actions that you will need to make in order to safely “age in place.” You will learn about options and programs in Frederick County that can assist you, and there will be opportunities for discussion and self-evaluation of readiness for extended independent living. Students are encouraged to take this Survey class, and then consider taking one or more of the additional three-hour “Intensives” addressing key topics related to successful independent living.
