You or your loved one wants to stay in their home, but what steps must be taken to do that safely? How do you find quality caregivers?

The decision-making process for both options is discussed, including information on costs and resources that can help.
It is an act of love to look to the future and have legal and financial matters planned and established ahead of needing assistance. Beyond the legal and financial, there is more to consider in advanced planning. What kind of funeral do you want? Who are all the people in those family photos?

This presentation will give the attendee a clear and organized method to “tie up loose ends” for their loved ones.
Someone you love has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease or another form of dementia. What does that mean and what comes next?

One of the hardest things for an older adult to do is to give up the independence and freedom of driving.
