Most of us don’t particularly enjoy thinking about getting older — and we certainly don’t like talking about it. Unfortunately, aging happens whether we like it or not, and it’s important for you and your loved ones to have a plan in place that ensures you’ll have the support you need as you get older.
On July 14th, we held a webinar with Henry Gornbein and Laurie Blume to discuss the factors you should consider when it comes to thinking about aging. Specifically, we covered:
- How you and your family can handle the challenges of aging
- The importance of retaining critical information (personal documents, medication lists, etc.)
- How to communicate this information with your loved ones
- Why you should plan for the challenges of aging sooner rather than later
