The Truth About Being a Senior: A Look Into Living Communities and Estate Planning

Finding the ideal Senior Living Community is a complex process. Every community is a little different in the care they provide, its culture, activities, and amenities they offer.  How do you know which community is right for you?  We will discuss things to look for in a community and questions to ask on a tour. We will also discuss the costs and what they do and do not include. Tuesday, 2/7 at 6:30PM
