Local Workshop: Question to Ask Your Aging ParentsAttending this workshop, Questions to Ask Aging Parents,/em>, will teach you how to talk your parents about aging, finances, and health care

Independent Certified Financial Planner™ Mark Dennis will present a free educational workshop titled “Questions to Ask Aging Parents” at 6:00 p.m. on September 18, 2012 at Café at the Hamptons in Fernandina Beach, located at 95742 Amelia Concourse.

According to Dennis, “Millions of adults provide direct care for a parent who needs help with some aspect of daily living. This need often comes on unexpectedly, leaving adult children sandwiched between planning for their own needs, providing for their children, and now, caring for their aging parents.” This workshop is designed for anyone who wants to plan ahead and be sure their parents’ golden years are as comfortable as possible by asking Mom & Dad a few important, if not awkward, questions early on.

Topics discussed at the workshop will include:

    -How to handle finances if a parent becomes ill or unable to manage complex financial decisions.
    -How to discuss issues regarding driving and living at home.
    -How to make sure a parent’s estate plan, power of attorney and will is up to date, while minimizing the family’s emotional stress.
    -What level of care and intervention parents may require should they become seriously ill.
    -How to determine if a parent’s health insurance coverage is adequate.
    -How to compile a list of important information that can be referred to should a parent become seriously ill or pass away.

Seating is limited and reservations are highly recommended. Reserve seats by calling Mark Dennis at 904-491-1889 or reserve online at agingparents09182012.eventbrite.com.
