Aging 101 - Educate to Navigate

On April 10 from 5 to 6 p.m., join us for Aging 101. The aging process is complicated and overwhelming. Join us to learn the in's and out's of how you can prepare for yourself (or your loved one) before it becomes too late. This includes knowing if you have a Long Term Care Policy, understanding the difference between non-medical and medical help, going over your local options as you age and much more.

Furthermore, we will take some time to discuss the benefits of utilizing a patient advocacy company. Joining us will be Art Mulligan, CEO of Senior Advocate Services and Sara Lynn Leavenworth, Director of Client Services. They specialize in advocating for older adults and their families so that they feel supported during late-life transitions.
Please RSVP by sending an email to mkenny@vnhlc.org
