Preparing to Grow Older Successfully: Housing Options – You Have More Choices Than You Think
Join us to equip yourself with knowledge and understanding for your later years. On three consecutive Sundays, March 1, 8 and 15, from 1:00 – 2:30 pm, Silver Souls and Mount Pleasant Village will co-sponsor a three-part educational program addressing issues of particular concern to those of us in our older years, those approaching retirement, and caregivers. Each session will feature an expert in the area and time for Q&A and will cost $10. Pay online or at the door.
Dixcy Bosley-Smith, a case manager for Iona Senior Services, will present the options available for aging in your home, co-housing, cooperative living, multigenerational living, independent and assisted living and nursing homes. She will discuss how to assess the locally available options, their costs, and eligibility for government support.
A former Mount Pleasant resident, Dixcy is a geriatric nurse care manager and a nurse-practitioner at Iona Senior Services. She conceived and spoke at Iona’s recent End-of-Life Expo. She has been a hospice nurse and refers to herself as an “End of Life Activist.” She is a founding staff member of Joseph’s House, a member of the Church of the Saviour, and has been a member of the board of Potter’s House and a nurse at Christ House.
