Community Education

There is no doubt about it, aging brings various challenges.  Some of us are caring for aging parents, some senior adults are caring for spouses, and there are many healthy older adults who aren’t prepared for possible future care needs at all.  There is so much to figure out and most of us don’t have a clue where to start.

We at NW Retirement Professionals have a desire to help our community by sharing information, whether it be through our blog or our workshops.

We offer a variety of presentations, from an eight session series called “A Blueprint for Aging” which covers many topics related to aging to single topic presentations or any combination in between. These presentations can  be customized to fit your groups’ interest and time.

To schedule free presentations for your community group, church or conference contact us at info@NWRetirementProfessionals.com.

What hosts of the workshops are saying…

“Our church hosted NWRP to teach a eight week class entitled “A Blueprint for Aging”, where a series of expert instructors came to speak in various areas related to preparing well for one’s senior years. It was hands down one of the most well-organized, well-prepared, and well-received classes we’ve offered. (Actually, we offered it twice because the people who took it the first time insisted we bring it back for others to be blessed by.) The feedback we received afterwards was universally positive, with everyone feeling extremely well-served by the instructors. As the pastor of adult education at our church, I worked directly with Cherie and Beth, who coordinated the class, and they were very professional in every aspect of their involvement. I honestly doubt a class on this general subject matter could be run much better and would encourage other churches to consider blessing their body with a similar class or seminar through this organization.” John Kwak, Village Baptist, Beaverton
