Ann Lindsay & Maggie Kraft, Aging Experts

The facilitators will utilize the curriculum, Aging Solo, a national award-winning online learning opportunity designed to help you take charge of your aging. Topics include: Your social and support networks; healthcare decision-making and end-of-life choices; aging in place; making a move; and your next steps. You will get a PDF handbook with a planner, reflection questions, resources, and helpful discussion of aging-related topics. Before each session, you will be required to watch a video that expands on topics in the handbook, and features discussions with aging experts and older adults who have implemented the lessons into their own lives.

THIS CLASS IS FULL.
It will be offered again in spring 2023.

 

Dr. Ann Lindsay

Ann Lindsay

Ann Lindsay, MD, is president of the Life Care Humboldt board of directors, a group focused on establishing a non-profit senior life plan community in Humboldt County. She was Humboldt County Public Health officer from 1993 to 2011. She and her husband, Alan Glaseroff, MD, shared a family practice in Arcata for 28 years and raised their two children here. They were recruited to Stanford University in 2011 to establish a primary care clinic for Stanford employees and dependents and their families who have multiple chronic health conditions. The clinic improved care, lowered costs and achieved top rankings in patient satisfaction with adoption of a new model of team care. The lure of life in Humboldt brought them back north in 2017. Ann is working on Life Care Humboldt so she will not have to leave Humboldt County again!
