In celebration of 2019 Aging in Place Week Oct. 13–19, local chapters of the National Aging in Place Council will present free live seminars built around the theme of “Paying for Aging in Place.”
The purpose of the presentations will be to help close the available funding awareness gap and make sure older adults and their families are apprised of all benefits and other funding sources.
The presentations to be held in seven communities from Long Island to Southern California will feature panels that include Medicare/Medicaid experts, health care management, registered nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, financial planners and investment advisors, elder law attorneys, estate planners, reverse mortgage professionals, home modification specialists and more.
“Too many people are struggling to pay for the in-home and other aging services they need. Many people are avoiding what they need due to fear of the costs,” says Marty Bell, executive director of NAIPC. “At the same time, benefits and other resources are going un- or under-utilized due to a lack of awareness or understanding. This week will be the beginning of NAIPC’s ongoing effort to fill that information gap.”
Events are scheduled for Atlanta, Georgia; Long Island, New York; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; Orange County, Riverside, and San Diego, California.
The National Aging in Place Council is a senior support network founded on the belief that an overwhelming majority of older Americans want to remain in their homes for as long as possible, but lack awareness of home and community-based services that make independent living possible.
