For Baby Boomers
Aging in Place offers “Preparing Today for Tomorrow: Discovering Your Home Care and Care Giving Options,” a participatory forum, on Saturday, October 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the South Brunswick Senior Center on Route 522 in Monmouth Junction.
It is focused on “those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers, those who will need caregivers.” The forum is designed to encourage the boomer and sandwich generations to discover questions they didn’t know they needed to ask. Topics include hospital discharge, problems and information gaps, questions nobody asks, getting things in place; family support and personal advocate, financial planning, insurance, housing, transportation, resources, and more. The keynote speaker is Dr. David Barile, director of goals of care: offering new approaches for treating older adults.
