AGING WELL: HOUSING OPTIONS FOR OLDER ADULTS
Three-part series in February and March

The retirement housing marketplace is complex. Join us for this series and gain an overview that will get you started on your own personal exploration of the options, for yourself or someone you care for. We’ll begin with a presentation covering the basics: levels of care, cost considerations, determining the right time to move, alternative options, and more. The second session will explore the financial decisions surrounding the choices we make. And the final session will feature a panel discussion with UWRA members who have made a variety of decisions about where to live.

LEARN ABOUT THE SERIES
