    We all want to stay independent as we get older. But the fact is, aging brings challenges. Thrivent Financial members have access to a free online program that helps people maintain their independence.

    • Find detailed information on local service providers that offer alternative living options and qualified caregivers who can help members stay at home longer.
    • Take assessments to get recommendations and personalized plans around concerns you or your loved ones are facing.
    • Access a resource library full of articles, checklists and videos on health, disability, aging and elder care topics.
    • Use the Care Circle to connect with family members and communicate confidentially and securely about care needs.
    • Access a Care Advocate if you or your loved ones need a qualified expert to consult with. (Members pay for the cost of the consultation.)
    • Independent Living FAQs.
