Why Do We Act Like Peter Pan When It Comes to Decisions About Aging In Place?
Don Shiner presents the complexities of decision making as we age with a focus on our housing choices. We often end up in homes that no longer enable us to spend the remaining years of our life in safety in comfort. The question is why?

Donald Shiner, PhD CD CPSM

An experienced educator he has designed and delivered marketing seminars on a wide range of topics and has been a keynote speaker at local, regional, national and international meetings and conventions.
