Planning AHEAD - September 13, 20, 27, October 4, 11, 18, 25

End-of-Life planning is an important process that every person should consider as they age. Many times, end-of-life planning is viewed as something that happens as one reaches retirement age. However, planning and decision making as early as one’s 30’s, 40’s and 50’s can significantly reduce stress, time and cost in the end-of-life planning process for both you and your loved ones. Sessions will explore setting health care wishes, financial responsibilities, estate planning, legal requirements and documentation, distribution of personal property, end-of-life decisions, and understanding of grief and emotional ramifications. Participants will receive a packet that will be mailed to them prior to the start of the series to help guide them through a manageable step-by-step plan. . Audience: Adults. Seniors. Cost: Free.

End-of-Life planning is an important process that every person should consider as they age. Many times, end-of-life planning is viewed as something that happens as one reaches retirement age. However, planning and decision making as early as one’s 30’s, 40’s and 50’s can significantly reduce stress, time and cost in the end-of-life planning process for both you and your loved ones. Sessions will explore setting health care wishes, financial responsibilities, estate planning, legal requirements and documentation, distribution of personal property, end-of-life decisions, and understanding of grief and emotional ramifications. Participants will receive a packet that will be mailed to them prior to the start of the series to help guide them through a manageable step-by-step plan. . Audience: Adults. Seniors. Cost: Free.
