The Future is Now is a multi-part series hosted online via Zoom and designed to help older caregivers and their family members make plans for the future. Throughout the series, families get help to create a letter of intent, a non-legal document that captures family desires and goals for the future. Creating a letter of intent can help families gain peace of mind that comes with having a plan.

Each session offers an opportunity to learn about important topics:

  • Hopes, dreams, and worries for the future
  • Expanding personal networks
  • Maximizing public benefits (SSI/SSDI/Social Security)
  • Future living arrangements
  • Supports for older caregivers
  • Keepers of the dream

The meetings will be held on four nights: November 10, 12, 17, and 19.
