By mid-life you have learned a lot about yourself, your partner, your kids, your career, and your parents. Then just as you start to feel “in-the-groove,” life changes! Work, family, and societal dynamics bring planned and unplanned challenges and decisions to be made.
How is my life purpose changing?
When, and how should I retire?
Should I up-size, down-size, move to be near the kids/my parents?
How can I stay healthy as my age advances, even as my health (or my family member’s health) is changing?
How do I address fears of cognitive decline, falling, increased medical appointments, and not being able to drive?
How do I not run out of money before I die?
How do I process end-of-life planning?
How can I best navigate through what is
the better half of my life using my values as my guide?
Mary E. McCall, Values Coach and Advance Care Planning Facilitator, Gerontologist, will present a 6-session series that will explore a values-based approach to communication and decision-making in the context of a variety of issues related to aging and families/loved ones.
