Everyone seems to agree that family members need to talk about potential changes in health, long term care needs, inheritance and estate planning issues before there is a crisis or someone is not able to communicate. But more often than not, we fail to initiate these important conversations around our final affairs before it is too late. Communicating and advance planning can reduce the burden, guilt and misunderstandings in families. It can also lessen the potential for conflict in a family when others are put in the position of making decisions for loved ones.
To assist people in thinking about the importance of planning for these end-of-life issues, the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Buffalo, Clark and Pepin Counties will be holding a free “Final Affairs” forum on Friday, November 9, 2012 at Buzz’s Banquet Room in Mondovi, Wisconsin from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. This forum will help people to begin to think about and have conversations around end-of-life decisions. The Final Affairs forum will provide important information, assistance and resources to attendees to assist in starting these important conversations.
The Final Affairs forum will have resource people available to share information and their expertise on numerous issues related to end-of-life. Attendees will be able to ask questions and take home information related to these issues. Issues covered during this forum will include legal issues, financial issues, funeral planning, estate planning, and medical consideration.
This is a free event for residents of Buffalo, Clark and Pepin Counties that includes lunch; however, space in limited. To reserve a spot at this forum, please call the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Buffalo, Clark and Pepin Counties at 866-578-2372. If you have questions, feel free to contact Susan Meyer, Information and assistance Specialist at the same number.
