Tuesday, March 13, 2018: Caregiving Workshop-Age By Design—Create a Life You Love Program #3:
Time: 4:00 – 5:00 PM at the Park Hill Library, 4705 Montview Blvd, Denver, CO 80207.
Age By Design—Create a Life You Love
How do you choose to age? By default or by design? Because we live in an age-denying society, most of us are not inclined to anticipate the future challenges and opportunities encountered as we age. Life happens. We react. A common scenario resulting in a less than desirable journey. So, how can you increase the odds that you will experience an EXTRAordinary life—a life that you love? First, understand the aging process (all facets). Second, identify traveling companions. Third, evaluate the environment. And finally, discern what fills you up, brings you joy, and gets you out of bed every day! Don’t let life happen to you. Instead, Age By Design—YOUR Design! Feel free to attend any or all of the programs.
Speaker: Jane W. Barton, MTS, MASM, CSA, Caregiving Ambassador AARP Colorado
Topic: Age by Design—The Reason
Program Description: What is the “why” of life? A curious question that becomes profoundly important as we age. The “why” serves to sustain us and to motivate us through many of the changes posed by aging. Please join us to chat about what gets you out of bed every morning. What puts a bounce in your step? What gets your heart racing and ignites your imagination? These and other questions are worthy of serious consideration.

Description: At some point, we will all need someone to help us. This might be provided by family members, friends, neighbors, professional caregivers or all of the above. Some of us have many people to turn to, others, not as many. This program will help you think through future caregiving needs in an effective way. Many wonderful online resources and other strategies will be explored including CareMaps, Lotsa Helping Hands, and Caring Bridge to identify and help you create future care options. This will be a fascinating way to assess your current “circle of care” and learn how to enhance it – before you need it. This will be led by Jane W. Barton, Author of Caregiving for the GENIUS, and an AARP Caregiving Ambassador. There are two times to choose from:
