Program Description

Event Details

Aging is universal and inevitable – and it doesn’t have to be daunting. With a positive attitude and some planning and foresight, we can age successfully. In collaboration with Staying Put in New Canaan, join us for an informative, four-part series that will address important issues to help you, or a loved one, be prepared to age well.

Death is inevitable, but you can control the circumstances surrounding it by making set plans on issues such as memorial service versus funeral, where and how you’d like to be interred and obituaries.

Julia Portale, Executive Director of Fairfield County House, and Danielle Smith, Hoyt Funeral Home will address these issues, as well as other related topics.
