Mapping Your Aging Journey

Loading Events

A recent study revealed that the vast majority of Canadians – fully 78% – want to stay in their current home as they get older, but only 26% think they’ll be able to. What do older adults have to consider, and what has to be put in place before it’s too late to live at home? What are the latest approaches to shared housing in Canada, and who ultimately decides which supports are best for you?

This session is moderated by Laura Tamblyn Watts, CEO of CanAge (Canada’s National Seniors’ Advocacy Organization) and features Sue Lantz, Founder and Managing Director of Collaborative Aging. This workshop will guide participants through her practical five-strategy framework for planning a healthy and socially connected aging experience in the community. The workshop will showcase ideas and tools available within the Options Open guide for considering (and even co-creating) options. Participants will learn how to be proactive in making transitions, and make informed and timely plans that allow for more choice while aging in place.

This session is part of Aging your Way: Creating an Age-Inclusive Canada, Together: an educational speaker series brought to you by CanAge and Toronto Public Library. View the complete series schedule on our website.
