Necessary Conversations: Downsizing in New Canaan

January 30, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Location: Lamb Room

Downsizing in New Canaan: What are your options?

This panel will discuss what is currently available and plans for developing an independent-living senior residence in New Canaan. According to Staying Put board President Judy Bentley, “There are discussions underway about additional independent living alternatives in New Canaan for older adults. While we have many wonderful resources, like Staying Put, which help seniors live independently as they age, there are people who want to remain in town without the burden of maintaining a home and with the modern amenities that independent communities provide. As both devoted volunteers and financial supporters, our seniors helped build our community into what it is today. It would be nice for them to have another independent living option so that they can remain in New Canaan.”


Russ Barksdale will discuss plans to develop a senior independent living option in New Canaan as part of the Waveny LifeCare Network. John Engel will discuss the availability, costs and options when downsizing from a house to a condo or co-op in town. Kevin Moynihan will discuss town government support and plans to address the housing needs of independent seniors who wish to remain in town as they age. Barb Achenbaum will moderate the program and provide resources and tips for transitioning.


In partnership with Staying Put in New Canaan.
