AGING WELL SERIES


CONNECTIONS AREA AGENCY ON AGING PRESENTS: 

Planning the Before and After of a Hospitalization 

As we age, it is wise to accept the possibility that a hospitalization will be “when” and not “if.” Preplanning can make a difference in the length and success of your recovery. Whether you are the patient or the caregiver, planning ahead can make a difference. Thinking through your personal needs and supports ahead can improve communicating your wants and needs with the medical personnel. 

Connections Area Agency on Aging staff will bring options to consider as you prepare for a hospitalization. Can you rehab at home or would a skilled nursing facility be best? What assistance will you need when you return home? Will you need services as you recuperate? What impact do chronic medical conditions have on your preparation needs. 

Join us for a lively interactive discussion and plenty of handouts!

Removing the Elephant from the Room: Planning Burial/ Cremation Arrangements 

You’ve always said you wouldn’t be caught dead in that outfit! Now is the time to tell your family. It’s time to talk about the elephant in the room, “your final wishes.” 

More and more people are choosing to pre-plan and pay for their final services in advance of need to protect their family from the financial and emotional upheaval sudden death inevitably brings. The most wonderful gift you can give your family is to have your final arrangements done in advance. 

Liz Jones, from Christy-Smith Funeral Homes, will be joining us in the Aging Well Series to talk about what you can do to protect both your loved ones and your assets.
