We hope to return to in person seminars in February starting with reduced/limited audience capacity.

    On the tour we will explore amenities, activities, meals, apartments, levels of care, costs and much more.

    When: March 4th at 10am

    Location: Online via Zoom Webinar

    Cost: Free for seniors and their guests

    Seating is limited, register to attend

  • What does aging in place really mean? And perhaps more importantly, what is the “best” place 5, 10, 15 or even 20 years from now. Learn how to determine when the current place is no longer the “best” place.

    If you choose to ‘stay put’ in your current home as opposed to moving to a retirement community, you have options – lots of them! The challenge is knowing which options are right for you.

    Our experts will explain the options you may need to successfully age in your home as well as discuss the truth about staying put or moving on so you are the one who is in control of the decision. When you make the decision for yourself, either in advance or in the moment, you control your own destiny. If left for others to decide on your behalf, you may not like the outcome.

    Take the time to learn what it takes to age in the best place long after retirement.

    When: March 18th at 10am

    Location: 5650 Riggins Court, Reno NV 89502, or Online via Zoom Webinar

    Cost: Free for seniors and their guests

Coronavirus Social Distancing

During the current period of social distancing, we are providing the seminars in an online webinar format (Zoom) where attendees can either phone in and listen to the seminar or preferably use a computer, tablet or smart phone to view and participate in the seminar live and in real time via video (attendees will not be on video). In addition, when safe to do so, seminars will be live in person (restricted audience capacity) with simultaneous broadcast via Zoom.

Information on how to access the webinars is provided during the registration process.

Are you new to videoconferencing or Zoom? No problem. Go to www.RetiredLivingTruthSeries.com/online to learn how you can participate. Special note, only the hosts will be on camera, no attendees. Therefore, if you are camera shy, there is no reason to shy away from videoconferencing at this event. Social distancing right now is necessary, but it should not be a barrier for you and your loved ones to get the information you seek.

HOW LONG IS THE SEMINAR?

Most of our expert panel discussions are about 60 minutes. Some run longer than others depending on the depth of the topic and the number of panelists. Any remaining time is used to address questions from attendees. We begin promptly at 10:00am and finish no later than 11:30am.

WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS AND CAN’T MAKE IT TO THE SEMINAR?

Please feel free to contact us concerning questions you may have about downsizing, senior living options, 55+ neighborhoods, or other related topics. If our staff is unable to answer your questions, we will direct you to one of our many subject matter experts who will be happy to assist you.

IS THERE GOING TO BE A SALES PITCH?

Nope. No sales pitch. You will have an opportunity to get to know the presenters, panelists, and hosts and can decide for yourself if it makes sense to request their services or products. Presenters and speakers may have materials available for you to take home, but it’s up to you to pick them up if you want them.

CAN ATTENDEES ASK QUESTIONS?

Yes! We want you to get your questions answered. Keep in mind that because we do our homework, many of your questions will likely be answered throughout the prepared panel discussion. If you still have an unanswered question at the end, you will have an opportunity to ask. We do request that if you have a specific question that is personal in nature (i.e. can’t be generalized to the group) that you request a consultation with one of our team members following the event.

CAN I ATTEND IF I’M NOT A SENIOR?

We welcome anyone who believes the information would be valuable to them. If you are not a senior, but you are seeking information to advise someone who is — or maybe you are planning ahead — please join us. 

CAN I REQUEST A TOPIC FOR THE NEXT SERIES?

Absolutely! We want to make the Retired Living Truth Series as meaningful and relevant as possible, so we welcome your suggestions and ideas. Naturally, we prepare the topics for the series well in advance, so be patient concerning timeframes for your suggested topic to hit the calendar.

CAN I ATTEND FOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT PURPOSES?

We always welcome service providers and business owners seeking to learn more about serving mature homeowners. If you attend WITH a registered client, there is no fee for you to attend. The fee for business owners and aging services professionals not attending with a client is $25 payable at the door. Due to limited seating, we reserve the right to provide priority seating to non-professionals.

WHY IS THE EVENT FREE FOR SENIORS AND THEIR GUESTS?

The professionals hosting, moderating, sponsoring, and serving as panelists have strong convictions about insuring that people are educated, empowered, and equipped as they prepare for late-life issues, especially where and how they will live. They have donated their time and contributed toward event expenses so that ALL seniors are able to attend regardless of their financial situation.
