UK Elder Care Lunch & Learn

Understanding Senior Housing Options: defining levels of care within your budget

Date Tuesday, July 12, 2011
Time 12:10 p.m. – 12:50 p.m.
Location W.T. Young Library Gallery Room

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
