How Solo Agers Prolong a Healthy Life

Experts tell us that planning ahead as well as improving or adding current behaviors are the combination for maintaining health and well being. This seminar features two different ways people can improve their lives. In the first part of the program, Joan Goldner from Jewish Family and Children's Services will describe the 'Futures' program JFCS provides which seniors can use to plan ahead and get regular 'well-being' checkups before they actually need personal help.

In the second half of the program, experts on nutrition from the local medical/hospital community will provide important tips on the best way to keep health and happiness going through paying attention to what people put into their bodies.

Palliative Care, Hospice and End-Of-Life-Issues

When seniors document their desires for the rest of their lives, it is important to let others know what their wishes are, especially those who will be charged with carrying them out, whether family or solo-ager advocates. While thinking about the end may be difficult, it's kinder to ourselves and our important others to make our wishes clear in advance. Representatives from Mission Hospice and other organizations that provide services to elders when they have serious illness and/or have reached the end of life will explain the type of services available to them. They will also discuss the new California 'Death with Dignity' law.
