Engaging with Aging in the Future Planning Process (webinar)

July 27, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

As families plan for the future, they will be engaging with the aging process as well. All members of the family are aging and with this comes things to consider for future planning. In this webinar, you will learn about ways to promote the health of the individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) as they age, retirement considerations, and end of life planning along with supporting grief and loss. Information will be shared about interventions that have been developed to help families with future planning as they age. This is the last of three sessions in the webinar series.
