Experts to share strategies for successful transitions in later life

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Seniors can learn strategies for successful transitioning in retirement and later life at an event Oct. 20.

The worse time to make important decisions for you or a loved one is during a crisis. As we age, we may experience some minor blips that cause us to veer a bit off a course set earlier in life, or you may face challenges or obstacles that force you down a completely different path.

On Oct. 20, from 1 to 5 p.m., come to the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center for a program designed to help you understand the obstacles and challenges you or a loved one may face and how to take control and successfully transition. By gaining knowledge now, you will be better equipped to make thoughtful decisions. Meagan Lawler, P.hD, will serve as master of ceremonies and our keynote speaker is Amy Schultz, a licensed clinical geropsychologist. There will also be a panel of experts in elder law, geriatric care management, aging in place and lifestyle options available in our community.

This week’s activities are listed below. Call the center at 503-635-3758 to register for classes and events and to make lunch reservations. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Cost is a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and better, all others cost is $5.
