Aging In Place Conference

Aging In Place Conference

Engage at Every Age

The Aging in Place Conference is Mid-State’s celebration of Older Americans Month, and this year’s theme—Engage at Every Age—means that you’re never too old (or young) to take part in activities that can enrich your physical, mental, and emotional well-being. It also means that regardless of your age today, there is no better time than now to start creating a plan to age your way. 

Why make a plan to age your way?

We plan for everything—births, college, retirement—but not a lot of people think about creating an aging-in-place plan. In this planning-centric society, sometimes we forget about the fact that we are all aging. To do it successfully, we should plan to meet our goals. Those goals are different for everyone; it can mean staying in the family home that you built, or downsizing into a smaller house or apartment. Most people don't want to go to a care facility, and the reality is that with some thoughtfulness, a very high percentage of people can age where and how they want to.

Join us at the Aging in Place Conference: Engage at Every Age on Friday, May 18. Perfect for anyone who wants to make the most of their senior years—whether you’re there already or looking into the future.

Conference highlights:

  • Social networking
  • Dynamic presentations—on staying healthy, help at home, and planning for care—from aging and wellness experts
  • Breaks to explore vendor exhibits
  • Free hearing screenings
  • Light breakfast and a healthy lunch
