Event description

Description

As we age it can be difficult to have conversations on topics that affect our health, safety and well-being. Join the new "Tea & Talk for Seniors" series that will provide you the opportunity to start the Conversation!

Join Sherri McKeen from the LHIN Home and Community Care and Maureen Greening from Housing Help Center for Tea & Talk about:

Housing and Care options for Seniors:

This workshop will focus on exploring future housing and care options as you age. Today wait lists are a reality for many housing and care options and this means you need to know your options and plan ahead. At some point in time many seniors will require support or help with activities of daily living, but that can take many forms. OHIP funded care cannot meet the needs of many so you need to be aware of the financial implications as well.

We will discuss some of the options that people might consider as they age. What are the risks and benefits of the options? How far ahead do you need to plan? We will explore options for living at home with support. House vs. Apartment or Condo - what type of homes does this work best in? What about supported or assisted living? What about Retirement homes? What about Long Term care?

The Tea & Talk Toolkit was devised from the project Building Foundations in Healthy Relationships for Senior Women that was a collaboration with the Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre and Elder Abuse Ontario in 2013 and funded by the Canadian Women’s Foundation. The Tool Kit has been adapted provincially by Elder Abuse Ontario and being presented to seniors in Lindsay and area on the fourth Tuesday of each month during 2017. Watch for announcements about upcoming sessions.
