Ask the Expert Webinar: Housing and Support for Older Adults
As individuals age, the ability to manage a home may evolve. When one lives with Parkinson’s, or has a loved one affected by the disease, there may be other factors to be considered in care. Changes in the progression of the disease and/or aging, may result in the need for in-home support with tasks such as housekeeping and bathing, or require a move to a smaller living space, assisted living, or a long-term care home.
Housing and support options are available, however, they can be confusing and overwhelming to navigate. On October 8, Marjahn O’Connor, Snezana Ristovski, and Rebecca Frederick from EngAge BC will join Parkinson Society BC for a webinar about Route 65, a new online platform designed to help older adults meet their housing and wellness needs. This will include how to use Route 65 as a tool to find suitable housing, as well as an overview of the different types of living and wellness options available for older adults.
We welcome all people with Parkinson’s to this webinar as well as their spouses and/or carepartners/caregivers, as they may benefit from learning more about the disease to assist in supporting their loved one.
Register today to reserve a spot for yourself, your household or group! If you will be watching the webinar on the same computer or screen as another person or group, only one registration is required.
