WHO WILL I BE WITHOUT MY JOB?
Non-Financial Planning for Retirement
Saturday, October 22 | 1  – 4 pm | REGISTER

Retirement is not just a financial proposition!

At this in-person workshop, you’ll learn how to create a compelling, positive vision for your retirement and personal future. Through reflective exercises and group discussions you will explore how your interests, values and strengths can help you shape your post-employment years.

The afternoon includes brief presentations drawn from the literature on happiness and fulfillment combined with robust small-group discussions. The content and conversations will spark your thinking about what your post-retirement life might look like. The material is suitable for anyone looking ahead to retirement as well as for recent retirees.

This workshop is not about financial planning; it is about planning for a life worth living.

UWRA & UWAA Members: $15 | Non-Members: $20

AGING WELL: DENTAL CARE FOR OLDER ADULTS
Thursday, October 27 | 11 am – 12 noon | ONLINE
Once upon a time, aging led inevitably to dentures. With a lifetime of advancements in dental care behind us, though, many if not most of us will keep our teeth as long as we live. Healthy aging includes paying attention to teeth and gums. Dental needs do change with age, so it’s important to work with a dentist who is experienced in treating older adults.

Join us for this online session as Dr. Susanne Jeffrey of the UW School of Dentistry discusses the specialized issues that arise for older adults and answers your questions.
