Free Long-Term Care Planning Lunch and Learn Webinar — July 10

SDSU Extension
Farm Forum

BROOKINGS, S.D. - The second in a four-part webinar series hosted by gerontologists from North Dakota State University Extension and SDSU Extension will take place on July 10. The webinar begins at 11:00 a.m. MDT/Noon CDT. Topics covered include long-term care, planning and financing options and how to identify optimal care options to meet family needs.

One in seven adults turning 65 today are expected to need long-term care for five or more years at some point during their life. With the national median annual cost ranging from $18,720 to $100,375, many families are unprepared to cover these expenses. In addition, families may not be aware of the wide range of long-term care services available.

By investing time in learning about long-term care before the need arises, families will have greater control and choices when it comes to long-term care planning.

The first webinar discussed caring for an older loved one, common stressors for family caregivers, strategies to manage stress, and resources/services available to help family caregivers.

Individuals will be able to participate in the webinar from the comfort of their own home or during their lunch hour. The webinar will be recorded for those that are not able to attend in person.

There is no cost to participate. Please register by visiting the SDSU Extension events page and searching for Long-Term Care Lunch and Learn.
