Session Descriptions

THE HOW TO’S of FINANCIAL RESILIENCY

Join AARP Indiana and Prosperity Indiana for a crash course in how (and how not) to be financially resilient and successful in your retirement. We'll be discussing tools and techniques for saving and managing savings, how to identify scams and fraud, the dangers of predatory lending, and other resources of interest. We'll be providing quick tips as well as informational handouts you can take home.

AGING IN PLACE

Identifying challenges to living independently as we age is the first step to being able to address the issues and prepare for the future. James Johnson from AMBA will discuss five key areas of your home to address to improve safety and ease of use, as well as some practical steps that can be taken to make important changes and improvements. Collecting and organizing important documents and information also plays an important role in having seniors continue independent living, with suggestions on what types of information should be up to date and easily accessible. The last topic focuses on having financial conversations with an aging parent – whether that’s your parent or you're the parent.

James Johnson, AMBA

 

COPING WITH SOCIAL TRANSITIONS IN RETIREMENT

In this brief talk with discussion, Phil Stafford will provide an overview of common and not so common transitions in social life with retirement. He’ll challenge prevailing views that portray retirement as a period of leisure and consumption or, on the other hand, portray aging as a medical problem. He advocates for a new culture of aging that calls for continued engagement with the world and better design for our small aging planet.
