Consultations and Presentations
Americans 85 years and older are the fastest growing segment of our population. Never in the history of the world have so many people lived so long.
Are you one of the millions of people caring for an aging parent, spouse or grandparent? Aging Deliberately can guide you through the complex problems and challenges of ensuring appropriate and safe care for your loved ones. We can also help you plan for your own future needs as you grow older.
Seventy percent of us are likely to need some kind of assistance before we died. Yet most of us have no idea of the services that are available, what’s needed, their costs, their quality, how they work together (or not) — or how to make wise choices.
Liz Taylor of Aging Deliberately has 35+ years experience providing expert consultations to families caring for their loved ones. She also assists adults in their mid years to prepare for their own aging while they’re healthy — and have the luxury of time to make thoughtful choices.
Most of us age accidentally, without planning or forethought. At Aging Deliberately, we help people prepare to age successfully — on purpose — because aging well is one of the most important life goals there is.
Join us to learn how to care for others and how to plan for your own future.

Who’s Got Your Back? Growing Older Without Kids
(whether you have them or not)
Adult children & spouses are called our “insurance policy” in old age – because they’ll step in & get us the right services when we become frail. Or will they? Your spouse might die before you, or you’re divorced or never married. Many have no kids. Those who do may find their kids aren’t able or capable of helping. Many live far away (the people who care about you must be nearby), show little interest in your well-being, or have other issues that make them unavailable.
So what to do? Who’s going to protect your interests if you can’t? This workshop by eldercare expert, Liz Taylor, offers no magic formula, but it will help you think about the issues in new ways and get on a path to find your own answers.
Fee: $10 per person.
