Whether you’re ready to move to a senior community in the next few years or five years down the line, it’s important to become acquainted with your options. What financial and legal considerations are there? How do you transition out of a home you’ve lived in for decades? Do you have to be retired to live in a senior community? What’s the difference between assisted living communities and life plan communities? You’ll come to know the facts, learn about the myths, and hear from a diverse panel of experts during this program.
Panelists will include:
- Paul Czepiga (Elder Law Attorney)
- Denis Horrigan (Financial Advisor)
- Susan Rabinovich (Relocation Professional)
- Suzie Dickson Moyer (National Consultant in Senior Housing)
“We were pleased to support this segment of Life Lessons because it tackles many of the topics people in their 60s and 70s face,” says Carol Ann McCormick, Duncaster’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “It was a natural fit for our community’s emphasis on independence and self-determination.”
Admission to Life Lessons: A Vibrant Retirement is free, but registration is required. Register at CPTV.org/lifelessons. Viewers at home are encouraged to submit questions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
