Retirement Living, Senior Housing & Specialized Residential Care Webinar

Part 1: Thursday, November 30 at 1:00 pm - Register Part 2: Thursday, December 7 at 1:00 pm - Register

The DMV offers a variety of retirement living and senior housing options. Many older adults have difficulty sorting through the numerous residential models, personal service arrangements and fee structures. It is challenging to cut through the marketing spin and understand the ‘bottom line’. This two-part webinar will discuss the various retirement living scenarios, what to expect in support services and cost considerations. The first session will explore independent living communities from subsidized senior housing to high end, luxury life planning campuses. The second program will address specialized residential care: Assisted Living, Memory Care and Long-Term Skilled Nursing Care. While it is beneficial to attend both webinars, each session stands on its own merits. Speaker: Jennifer Marie Brown Jennifer Brown has worked in the medical/healthcare field for more than 50 years.
