Arlington, VA, January 18, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Take home valuable information to help the 55 and older group avoid the pitfalls of estate planning, downsizing and health-care. This exciting seminar series puts seniors in front of local experts and professionals equipped to answer pertinent questions about these issues and more. Topics coming up include Reverse Mortgages, Nutrition, Home Improvement, In-home care and Money Matters.
Many older people strive to stay in their home as long as possible (referred to as "aging-in-place") and using the concept of Universal Design can help that happen. A few alterations, such as ramps, lever handles and hand rails can create a safer and more manageable environment. Sources of in-home health care will be discussed in later seminars.
It can be daunting and even overwhelming for seniors considering downsizing. “What to do with all this stuff”? “How do I prepare my house for sale”? "Where am I going to move?" Daniel Sanders, of Four Sales, Ltd. has spoken about estate liquidation, auctions and consignment services and how to deal with all that “stuff.” These experts have been in business since 1972 and have run more than 3,000 events.
Are those legal papers in order? Get out that old will and those insurance policies and find out how one can properly provide for heirs, with confidence. Attorney, Michele Wright, was well received with advice on estates and trusts. A local insurance agent and future seminar speaker recently referred to a new and more comprehensive “assisted- care” policy to be presented at one of these seniors events.
Bring friends, family members and questions to the next event, which will be advertised in the Beacon and the Arlington Sun Gazette newspapers. The seminars are on a 6-week cycle now at the Arlington Central Library, 1015 Quincy St. N. and hope to present a seminar per month at other locations in the county. Watch for those ads.
Brace Kennedy is a residential real estate expert and is quoted as saying, “I felt it was necessary to provide an arena where people over 55 can hear the facts about these various facets of getting older and maybe get a few new ideas.”
