Identifying the pitfalls many individuals face when they become incapacitated,

have a chronic care need, or face death.

Planning for the end of life saves considerable time, money, headache and heartache for those we love most. In my experience as an elder law attorney and Death Doula, I have often observed the pitfalls many individuals face when they become incapacitated, have a chronic care need, or die. In this Forum, we will address questions such as:

  •  How do you make sure your estate plan works as intended when you need it most? 
  • What do you need to do beyond signing your basic, legal documents?
  • How should your plan change when you or a loved one has a diagnosis or disability? 


Through proper planning, many of these cracks can be filled and you will have a better quality of life as you age. Join us to learn more!
