- St Louis is Aging: Are we ready? – Wednesday, May 4, 2016 – 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM
Over the next 30 years, the number of St. Louis residents 65 or older will increase by 77 percent; an increase of 288,000 people. By 2045, one out of every four people in the region will be over the age of 65. This is a trend that should not be ignored. This rapid growth of the older population will put pressure on multi-generational families; housing and transportation options; workforce development and employment opportunities; health care costs and availability; and how communities plan and develop.Join us at the St. Louis Public Library Central Library Auditorium (1301 Olive Street, St. Louis, MO) on Wednesday, May 4th to consider the importance of this changing demographic and how we compare nationally. We will explore the needs of our aging population; the policies and resources needed to address this trend; and the possible consequences if we are not ready.

It was a rite of passage for you to have the Talk with your kids about the beginning of life (as in the birds and the bees). An even tougher conversation is when you need to talk with your (now adult) children about the challenges and decisions that your family will face in the last years of your life. Tim will give a presentation about decision-making advice designed to help older adults and their children develop a plan to finance the future, focusing on family discussions about staying at home, using in-home services or moving to different types of communities. Each family in attendance will receive a copy of Tim’s book, “The Other Talk.” Event will be at Meridian Village. Please RSVP by May 16th at 618.205.2138.
