Maintaining independence is a key factor in being able to age in place well. What are the secrets to doing this? What are some things to consider in working towards this goal? If you or a loved one would like to find out, Northwest Neighbors Network, which works to help seniors age well in their own homes, is hosting an interactive discussion Wednesday, June 1 about ways that seniors can maintain their independence for as long as possible. The discussion will run from 3-5 p.m. at the Mountlake Terrace Community Senior Center, 23000 Lakeview Drive, Mountlake Terrace.
Some topics being discussed are:
- When to hire help
- Legal steps to preserve your independence
- When to consider assisted living options, and ways to evaluate them
There will be several professionals on site to discuss these important issues and offer their perspective and help. For more information, please email Social@NorthwestNeighborsNetwork.org or text or call 253-237-2848.
