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.

How To Be a Successful Solo-Ager

Are you a 'Solo-ager?' That is a contemporary name for people over 60 who don't have either a spouse or children, or whose families are geographically remote. Because older adults often rely upon their adult children to help with the routine tasks of daily life, being a solo-ager, the PJCC has created a new series featuring discussions, tips and techniques for successfully navigating this period in life. Anyone interested in any of the following subjects is asked to first attend this prerequisite introductory workshop. (If you have attended either the May 7 or the September 10 introductory workshop, you do not have to attend this prerequisite workshop.) Questions: Call Betty Burr @ 650-378-2698

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.

Solo-Aging at Home (or Someplace Like It)

How do we select housing options as we age? Most people say that they would like to remain in their homes as long as they can. Sometimes that isn't possible. Our first presenter, Kaye Sharbrough, founded a service called 'Senior Seasons' which helps seniors find the right place for themselves from the variety of options available. Kaye will give an overview of options, very important to solo-agers, and will point out some ways in which people can plan ahead to be able to 'Age in Place' as long as they can.

One way people can get help for in staying in their homes is to join one of the several 'villages' that have been started in San Mateo County. These membership organizations provide access to services and information that make it easier to function when members are older. This is especially helpful for solo-agers who may not have other resources. For our second hour, representatives from three local 'villages' will explain what their organization offers for solo-agers.

Success As A Solo-Ager - The Specifics

Solo-agers are people over 60 who don't have either a spouse or children, or whose families are geographically remote. Because older adults often rely upon their adult children to help with the routine tasks of daily life, being a solo-ager presents a special set of challenges. This series of bi-monthly meetings is a follow-on to the May 7 and September 10 introductory overview sessions. Each meeting will feature one or two areas of concern to solo-agers - Building social support, Legal, Financial and Care Management are examples. Guest speakers will be invited for some meetings. To get information about the order of subjects and the materials and checklists, call Betty Burr at 650-378-2698.
