Tuesday, January 30:  Caregiving Workshop-Age By Design—Create a Life You Love Program One

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 Process and the Players

Program Description: The journey of aging will presents a myriad of challenges for one and all—physical, cognitive, emotional, psychosocial, financial, and spiritual. By understanding the shared journey of aging, you can anticipate the inevitable changes and design a preferred plan for aging. Please join us for a thought-provoking chat about the process of aging and to imagine a life that you love.

What gets your heart racing and ignites your imagination? These and other questions are worthy of serious consideration.
