Residential Options for Seniors: Retirement Living Workshop
Wednesday, June 14, 2:00 p.m.

Learn about what living arrangements are available to us when we decide that independence is no longer the best option. John Milford will discuss different housing choices including: equity (ownership); entry fee (non-equity); Villages and NORCS (naturally occurring retirement communities); affinity based housing; and rental (including independent, assisted living, and continuing care communities).
With over 34 years in the retirement living field, John has a deep expertise in the aging services industry and remains active as the principal of Heritage Consulting for Retirement Living. (for more information see our calendar on www.marinvillage.org) This event is co-sponsored by Rhoda Goldman Plaza and Seniors at Home.
