(Em)Brace Yourself! Aging and Retirement in the 21st Century

Are you thinking about retiring? Planning ahead for your biological, psychological, social, and spiritual needs might help you prepare for retirement, but aren’t we really talking about more than one stage of life?

Join Lisa for a free workshop at the 17th annual Depression Conference in Ithaca New York on Wednesday, November 10th, 2010. The theme of this year’s conference is: Stories of Our Transitions – Recovery can be learning to tell a new story.

Learn the difference between a fifty-five year old retiree and a seventy-five year old, and how to plan for being ninety or one-hundred. We’ll learn about a sacred time of life called “Elderhood” and the special gifts Elders have to offer society.

This workshop will offer some intriguing insights and lively discussion about retirement and aging, and give you the tools you need to make a healthy and happy transition into your own future.

For more information about the conference and to register, please contact the Mental Health Association in Tompkins County at 607-273-9250.

Lisa Kendall is a licensed clinical social worker and clinical gerontologist with a private practice in Ithaca, NY. She is also an Eden at Home Educator, and her blog, “Reflections from the Crossroads,” covers aging and Elder care issues as well as self care for any member of the care partner team.

  • Hi Lisa, I’ve called the Mental Health Assoc. but the person who I need to talk with wasn’t in. I left a message, but would like to get some info from you as well.

    What is the time for the conference? Are you one of several speakers? What time is your talk?

    I love the topic and hope to be able to attend.

    Would appreciate talking with you about your private practice and your amazing web presence. How about coffee or lunch sometime?


  • Hi, Suzanne – It’s great to hear from you! I sent a note via e-mail; I’d love to get together so let’s make that happen! I want to link up with your website, too. Hope to see you soon, Lisa K.
