People are living longer, healthier lives than their parents before them. With this in mind, we need to make sure our money and our homes last for extended lifetimes.
Come find out how to tackle these challenges on Saturday, October 19th. Join AARP, ReVisions Resources, and the San Diego chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) for Green Retirement, a free retirement planning event.
Enjoy a continental breakfast before spending the morning with industry leaders who will discuss how to manage credit and debt, and how to make the most of your savings. You’ll get access to the resources you need for successful financial planning and asset protection, including retirement readiness notebooks. You can check AARP’s online retirement calculator to see whether you’re saving enough for retirement.
After lunch, the focus will turn to your largest single investment: your home and how to make it more livable. This is the final workshop of the nonprofit agencies’ Designed for Life series. The focus is on sustainability – how people in our area are making their homes more livable for comfort, convenience, safety, health, and low energy costs. You can check our steps toward a more sustaining and sustainable home to see how your home can serve you better.
Tours of the SDG&E Energy Efficient Smart Home will be available, though space is limited. The Smart Home integrates the energy-saving technology of today with the innovation of tomorrow. Sign up on the day of the event to learn more about the technology behind this state-of-the-art facility.
Earlier workshops at Pirch (Fixtures Living), ProSource Flooring, and Illuminating Interiors focused on innovative choices for replacing big ticket items – appliances and flooring – as well as better lighting solutions. At this event interior designers from ASID will showcase how these products and design solutions come together for making the home livable for a longer lifetime. A sponsor of this series is Wardell Builders Custom Home Remodel and Home Repair & Maintenance divisions.
