October 3, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am$25.00
Remember playing the board game CLUE? The panelists listed below are all passionate about serving older adults and supporting their families. They will portray the game characters in our “Aging version” of the CLUE Board game while exploring the mysteries and challenges of growing older with dignity while guiding you through problem solving and finding the necessary resources to help ones quality of life as we are living longer.
Participants will arrive on Wednesday, October 3rd to start at 8 a.m. at Meadowview Assisted Living and be welcomed by 8 CLUE characters. Each woman attending will get our NorCoWIB version of an Aging CLUE game. You will serve yourself a delicious breakfast, courtesy of Meadowview, and be provided the opportunity to play the game of CLUE while exploring the journey that living a longer life entails and where you might wish to turn for assistance in your golden years; or learn about important resources for an aging family member.
We will touch on:
- Rehab services
- Skilled nursing
- Memory care
- Senior placement
- Independent living
- Financial stratigies
- Senior services
- Assisted living
- Home care
If you have experienced the challenges of finding the correct resources for a loved one when life feels like it is falling apart – this Workshop is for YOU! There’s nothing worse than the helpless feeling of not knowing what to do or where to turn to when things are crumbling around you. We have put together a team of experts and we are assembling a resource packet for each person participating to take home to have when you need to face some difficult decisions. This is a “hand-on” game, not to make light of the aging population, but to fully engage YOU in thinking…gosh, this could be my Mom, my granddad, or shoot…this could be me in another decade or so. Dementia is now often known to attack people in their 40s and 50s not just in their 70s and 80s. PLANNING makes this journey so much easier; come and let us help you be prepared!
Let’s meet our CLUE characters and their businesses, each has a passion for serving older adults in their golden years. They will serve as your table hostesses.
