Did you know that nearly three out of four people over the age of 65 will need some form of help with everyday activities as they get older? Healthy aging means having a plan in place so that you are proactive vs reactive in a crisis situation.   There are several programs and living options available to you in SWFL to aid in the success of aging gracefully however these services are not always available at the push of a button, so it is important to have an understanding of the best places to find trustworthy advice and accurate information in advance.  We invite you to join SBB University and our panel of area experts on Friday, February 21 at 10 am as we explore topics ranging from elder law, insurance options, retirement communities, and end of life planning designed for the savvy and
