To make a reservation, please call 805-497-0189. Walk in registration is also welcome. This important workshop will address what it means to “get your affairs in order,” and why it is important to do this before faced with a life changing event. The hardest part of this process is often how to talk with a loved one about taking this step. Many seniors will feel a loss of control, fear and embarrassment when asked about their affairs. Feelings of urgency, chaos and frustration often occur for the “caregiver” or adult children. Join us as Terri Hilliard Olson, Esq., director of Senior Concerns’ Legal Concerns pro-bono legal services program, and Alan Ungar CFP®, director of the Financial Concerns pro-bono program, share important tips on what to consider when getting your legal and financial affairs in order, along with Annette Broersma who will share tools you need to start this conversation with loved ones. “Our desire to help must be tempered with respect, love and patience,” says Andrea Gallagher, President of Senior Concerns. “Our goal through this workshop is to guide people through this often challenging, but extremely important process and ensuring that the loved one’s needs are met.” Alan B.
