Greater Atlanta Chapter of the National Aging in Place Council Offers Free Seminar on Paying for Aging in Place in Alpharetta
Tuesday, October 15th free community event celebrates 10 years of our chapter serving Greater Atlanta and National Aging in Place Week!
There are frequent reports that tell us the majority of America’s older adults are financially underprepared for retirement.
At the same time:
· The National Council on Aging reports there are $20 billion in available benefits for seniors that go unused;
· The percentage of over-65s extracting their home equity is in single digits;
· State tax breaks for the elderly, such as property tax deferrals and tax credits for doctor-prescribed home modifications have small participation rates; and,
· Even with its recently approved expansion into additional services, including homecare and transportation to medical visits, Medicare Advantage, while growing, is still only taken advantage of by a third of those eligible.To address this vital issue, the Greater Atlanta Chapter of the National Aging in Place Council, an association of in-home aging service providers will be presenting a free seminar for seniors and their families as a part of the 2019 National Aging in Place Week celebration. The presentation, Paying for Aging in Place, will take place on Tuesday, October 15 from 5:00-7:00 pm at Atria North Point, 100 Somerby Drive, Alpharetta, GA. The presentation will feature Dr. Heidi Ewen, Director of the Master of Science in Healthcare Management program at The University of Indianapolis, and a panel of older adults who have been successfully navigating aging in place and will share their experiences.
