Seniors in Transition

It’s human nature to put off or even ignore life’s difficult decisions and the challenges of aging may intimidate us.  To help prepare for the important transitions that aging demands of us, Adult RE is again sponsoring an eight-week program presented by the Seniors in Transition program.  Starting on August 17, this class will take place on Thursday afternoons through October 5.  It offers a supportive environment where you can explore options for independent living and alternatives when living on your own is no longer safe or desirable.  Topics covered will be participants’ current status, hopes and dreams with regard to independent living, stereotypes of aging, in-home care, alternative living situations and downsizing.  Presenters will discuss personal knowledge of local senior communities, arrange possible site visits, and discuss how to share your plan with friends and family.

The lead facilitator will be Ms. India Geibel.  India is a former nurse and also taught nursing at Boise State University prior to retirement.  She lived in Santa Rosa in the past and has returned here after her retirement.  She may be assisted from time to time by another facilitator, John Morris.  John has a passion for working with seniors and cared for his mother-in-law during her final years with alzheimers.  Today John is a private caregiver for several local clients in addition to working with the Seniors in Transition program.

Dates:   8/17, 8/24, 8/31, 9/7, 9/14, 9/21, 9/28 and 10/5

Time:    1:00-3:00pm

Fee:      $25
