Description

Meaningful Aging is designed to help you in your journey as you grow older, aiming to understand that our goals and abilities change as we enter different stages of our lives, all the while knowing that our significance does not diminish.

This event is designed for:

  • the senior who is active and wants to get more out of life.
  • the middle-aged person who is thinking about making retirement meaningful: to consider retirement as an extended holiday leads to disappointment.
  • anyone who has an aging family or friends who will need care.
  • all clergy who need to understand how successful aging benefits their congregation.
