Recent studies confirm that the majority of women have no plan for their retirement care, and that while only 3 in 10 believe they will need long-term care, 7 in 10 actually will. It is also a fact that most will face one or more major life transitions such as loss of a spouse or job, divorce, disability, or severe medical or emotional difficulties.

This Workshop will provide vital information for creating a network of support should you face a major life change. You will receive information on services and programs available to assist you during life transitions. Regardless of your age or current situation, it is time for you to:

Learn about available programs and services
Know that Medicare is not “long-term care”
Put in place the legal documents you need
Learn about retirement living options
Form the support network you will need
Develop a healthcare plan for aging
Make lifestyle changes to optimize your health
Create an emotional wellness plan.
