The Navigating As We Age: Changes and Choices course brings peace of mind to both residents and their family members. Peace of Mind comes from making informed choices about the myriad of options for the decisions involved in aging.

The decisions focus on three areas: Legal, Financial and Health issues. Please see the FAQs below.

The next course is expected to start in the fall. You may also sign up for our Emailing List for any notices.
