Senior Law Day: Law & Information for Older Adults

July 16 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

Join us to learn more about navigating the key legal issues facing older adults. Learn from experts about estate planning, advanced directives, government benefit programs, as well as what you need to know about the services available, how to seek out information about long-term care, and how to pay for it. Geriatric care issues “at home” including planning and modifications that may be helpful, how to conduct a home safety assessment and policy issues facing older adults will also be addressed.

The informational session will be followed by a robust Q-and-A session where our experts will help answer questions and provide resources.
