Doris Day’s familiar, well-loved ballad, an anthem of a bygone era, suggests that people cannot foresee or plan for the future: whatever what will be, will be. When that is applied to today’s aging experience, however, most professionals would beg to differ. In one’s 60s, 70s and 80s, various changes can be anticipated, and many elements can be planned.

Join a professional geriatric care manager from CJE Senior Life for some dynamic discussion about the question marks and tipping points of aging.

  • Financial considerations and the costs of care
  • Longevity and the fear of outlasting savings
  • Types and varieties of housing options; the pros and cons of moving
  • Navigating the health care system
  • Managing unknowns: physical health, clarity, and cognition
  • Finding meaning and a sense of purpose to maintain some quality of life

The program will consider solutions and strategies that go into effective planning, as well as some future trends forecast by the experts. 

Joan Ente, a licensed clinical social worker, is the Manager of “Your Eldercare Consultants,” CJE’s private care management service for older adults. CJE SeniorLife is a trusted name in senior care, providing life enrichment, supportive resources, healthcare, research, and education since 1972.
