State Rep. Tom Cross and his Senior Advisory Council invite members of the community to attend a free seminar entitled ‘Family Matters – Planning for Your Aging Parent’s Needs’ – an informational program for family members, seniors and caregivers to be held at The Timbers of Shorewood on Tuesday evening, August 21 from 6:30 – 8:30pm.
Guest speakers include elder care attorneys Jennifer Lynch and Chet June on the importance of wills, powers of attorney, and Medicaid issues; Dr. Sandy Carlson on taking care of the caregiver and her own personal story; Mr. Ken McConnaughay on long term care insurance; and Senior Services of Will County on Medicaid eligibility and local resources available to seniors and caregivers.
Admission to the event is FREE with complimentary refreshments provided. A question-and-answer session will be held at vendor tables and free legislative brochures on senior care issues will be provided by Rep. Cross’ office.
“Caring for an aging parent can be a challenge, and many seniors hesitate to involve their children as they consider major decisions like assisted living or insurance needs,” Cross said. “Our Family Matters program helps adult children and their aging parents to value the importance of communicating with each other and planning ahead, so that both can enjoy peace of mind and time spent with family
