Legal Planning: For Our Loved Ones & For Ourselves
Presented by Amy Dougherty, Bluegrass ElderLaw
September 19, 2017
12:10 p.m. - 12:50 p.m.
W.T. Young Library - Alumni Gallery Room
Register here.

When an older loved one becomes unable to speak for themselves, we want to make sure their wishes regarding their finances, health care, long term care, and end-of-life care will be honored. We also want the same thing for ourselves. Amy will discuss the necessary legal documents we all need when planning for a loved one’s or our own long term care. The downside to not having the necessary legal documents – a guardian will be appointed by the courts! Legal planning may be difficult and emotionally charged, but it can make a critical difference in the life of someone we are caring for or in our own. Please join us as we answer the question -  What do we need to do to start the planning process?
