Life Transitions
Tuesdays at 8:45 a.m. and Fridays at 6:45 a.m., every other week

Old age is a life-stage that re-defines life priorities -- and it needs to be addressed in a functional way.

Life Transitions examines the issues of aging from social, behavioral, environmental, financial, and health perspectives.

Discussions focus on the positive as well as the stressful aspects of the aging process, with professionals, caregivers, and the elderly themselves, working to “demystify” the aging process and present old age in a positive way without minimizing the reality of aging.
