The Power of Planning: Taking Control of Your Own Aging Journey
Wednesday, April 24, 2024, noon – 1:15 p.m.

Many of us have been there for parents and other loved ones as they have grown older. It is often through these experiences that we begin to recognize the wisdom of planning for our own health, legal, and financial concerns, as well as housing considerations.

There’s no crystal ball, but this seminar will help participants to draft a road map for anticipating and proactively planning for their own enlightened aging.

The Power of Planning is a 75-minute, interactive seminar where you can benefit from the knowledge and expertise of a Certified Care Manager and an Elder Law Attorney. These experienced advisors will help you prepare for both the predictable as well as the What If’s of aging.

We’ll cover:

  • Legal considerations and the essential legal documents everyone should have in place.
  • Options for long-term care if you experience health, mobility, or memory changes.
  • Cost considerations.
  • Finding the right support to help you navigate decision-making.
