Course Description

IN PERSON: Did you know that Triangle continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) have waitlists of four to 15 years? With the influx of seniors here, the demand for CCRC spots has grown, leading to long wait times. Likewise, competition to hire competent in-home care for those who choose to age in place is fierce. Through expert speakers and class lectures, we will discuss maintaining our independence as aging progresses and our needs change. We'll explore the challenges and opportunities that come with aging, and survey the options available for extending independence and promoting quality of life through home, community and other services. Our focus will be on aging in place and retirement communities. We'll consider the suitability of your home and community for aging in place and various choices for home care services. Finally, we'll visit a number of CCRCs to learn about the services they provide, their contract models, their entrance and monthly fees, and the nature of waiting lists. | Lecture + Q&A.
