Where do you and your loved ones fall?

When it comes to funding support needed for aging, an estimated 50% of Americans have the challenge of being “not too rich and not too poor,” which, in many ways, can be the hardest spot to be in.

We want to help.

Three circles representing segments of the population and how they will fund care for aging.

So, what if you could have an "aging-in-place concierge"?

You may not even know what questions you should be asking to best take care of your loved ones – but that’s why we’re here!

You’re not supposed to go it alone!

Interested in being a vendor or sponsor at the workshop?

As our goal is to connect goods and service providers to those in need, we welcome vendors who can cater to the workshop attendees  (i.e., those, likely aged 45+, who are facing the challenges of caring for the aging).

Questions about attending the workshop?

We believe many families may be seeing each other for the first time in months, if not years. If you have a family member who needs more care or is having a hard time financially or can no longer live at home, does your family have an idea what to do? Most adult children may realize that they need to know what to do, but they do not know where to start or who to talk to. If you are aging alone, finding people to be “on your team” to know your wishes and support you is more important than you may realize.
 
This workshop is designed to connect you with others, learn from local speakers who can share their wisdom and meet professionals from the St Joseph Business Guild who can provide support, guidance and services to help your family. We are looking to build our communities, faith, and families.
 

We want this time to be where you can start a conversation with your family, best friend, or neighbors. We will be providing a light breakfast and lunch. You will be welcome to bring a notebook and pen to take notes.

This conversation is ideal for adults ages 45 and older. Many are caring for families and aging parents in addition to working full time.
 
Come for yourself. Come as a family. Couples may want to come as a way to work on this together. If you are travelling from out of town for the holiday, you may want to find some local contacts you can reach out to for guidance locally. Maybe you have been designated as the expected “caregiver” because you live closest to your aging loved ones. Or your sibling, who needs support services, and their care may become your responsibility after your parents pass, may want to know what resources are available.
 
Good question. In short, we are having this event to start the conversation about a topic that no one wants to have. Unfortunately, this is one topic everyone needs to face as some point. Many are waiting too long to have this conversation, in which case, your choices become limited or even taken out of your hands – regardless of your wishes. We want you to know that you can age and die with intention.
 
We also wanted to take advantage of families who may be together for the first time in months or years. Sure, you could be taking some much-deserved rest connecting with family or getting ready for the upcoming holidays. Families who prepared and created an intentional plan, often share, “we appreciated knowing everything was taken care of.” Creating your “life lesson” might be a gift that has more meaning for your loved ones knowing they are able to follow your wishes. While it is not fun to do in advance, it is a gift that will be passed on for the next generation.
