The Education Department of the Woman’s Club of Larchmont will present a panel discussion on the opportunities and challenges of aging. Participants will provide facts and suggestions to help one plan ahead.
Life-style options will be discussed by Elaine Weingarten, Executive Director of At Home on the Sound. Topics include different living arrangements, how to remain independent, and how to plan for what one can and should do as one ages.
Patricia Bave, Elder Law Attorney with Kommer Bave & Ollman, will cover the importance of planning presenting the topics of wills, trusts and advanced directives such as a healthcare proxy, a power of attorney, and a burial directive. Other areas of concern are avoiding guardianship, and asset preservation planning along with additional legal measures that one should address.
The psychological aspects of aging and the skills necessary for having the best possible life in one’s older years will be the areas explored by Beth Metzendorf (pictured), a Clinical Social Worker in Larchmont.
A question and answer session will follow the discussion.
The free program is open to the public.
