Homecare vs Long Term Care – Where will I live?

Wednesday, March 10, 2021, 1:00 – 2:30 pm PST
via Zoom webinar – Please register here

One of the biggest decisions we face as we age is “where will I live?” Please join the Central Okanagan Hospice Association and community partners Vantage Living Communities and Jumpstart Communications share from a healthcare and a quality-of-life perspective, the joys and challenges, and the pros and cons, of aging in place in your home, or a transition and move into long term care.  Tips on how to prepare for these transitions will be discussed along with strategies to stay in place in your home for as long as possible.
