Description

The UC San Diego Center for Healthy Aging presents

Symposium for Healthy Aging & Senior Living


Why do I need to think about senior housing? What are the myths and realities of senior living? How can I afford a senior living community? What do I need to consider if I want to stay at home?

These challenging questions will be addressed during our Symposium for Healthy Aging held on June 12 at Atkinson Hall Auditorium on the UC San Diego campus.

Please join us for this day-long event and explore options to continue living a vibrant life and thriving -- important information for making an important decision.

The symposium will feature keynote speakers and multidisciplinary panels with prominent experts from across the country. Keynote speakers will include Margaret Wylde, PhD, and Joy Loverde.

Dr. Margaret Wylde is the founder of ProMatura Group and author of five books, including Right House, Right Place, Right Time: the Community and Lifestyle Preferences of the 45+ Housing Market; Boomers on the Horizon: Housing Preferences of the 55+ Home Buyer; and Building for a Lifetime: The Design and Construction of Fully Accessible Homes. She serves on the board of directors of the American Seniors Housing Association and has served on the boards of the American Society on Aging, National Association of Senior Living Industries, and Seniors Housing Council of the National Association of Home Builders.

Joy Loverde is the author of the best-seller The Complete Eldercare Planner, described as "the most complete resource between two covers" by Woman's Day magazine. Her second book, Who Will Take Care of Me When I'm Old?, will be available in October.
