UK Elder Care Lunch & Learn
Understanding Senior Housing Options: defining levels of care within your budget
The goal of this seminar is to clarify some of the confusion over housing options for our elder population. The seminar will define the various housing options available for senior community living, the care one can expect to receive at each level, the expected cost, and what is available in our area. State guidelines and licensing/certification will be discussed and defined. We will address the question, “when do I consider alternative living arrangements and how do I apply?”
For more information, call Elder Care at (859) 323-4600 or contact Terri at firstname.lastname@example.org.Back to Top
