Join us for a discussion on different housing options for older adults and their families to consider as they age in their communities. Speaker Paula Taliaferro of the COAAA will explain the housing continuum and define common jargon. She will provide resources to help locate and assess these alternatives, including their pricing structures. Each participant will also receive a housing and long term care guide which lists and describes various options in Central Ohio.
