"How to ensure your decisions are respected in the future: Elder Law and Asset Protection Planning for LGBT Seniors"

If you have a health crisis, are you prepared? Do you know who is legally authorized to make critical decisions for you if you cannot?

Attendees will learn about MassHealth (Medicaid) planning and eligibility, the five-year look back period, asset protection strategies for home and/or savings, and Irrevocable and Revocable Trusts.

Attorney Curley stated that "most seniors have done no planning to protect their assets and their independence - and they fear it is too late to try. Nothing could be further from the truth - people owe it to themselves to learn their lawful options so they can make an informed decision for their future. With full time care costs at nursing homes or at home often exceeding $15,000 per month, failing to plan ahead can be catastrophic. Middle class seniors are those with the most to lose if they require long term care. The good news is that through careful, legal planning, seniors can take action today to help preserve their independence, their home, and their savings in the future."

One of just 24 Certified Elder Law Attorneys (CELAs) in Massachusetts, Attorney Curley serves on the Board of Directors of the MA Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (MassNAELA), which is the Commonwealth's leading group of attorneys focused on the legal needs of the elderly and those with special needs.

Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 6:30 p.m., Elder Law Presentation at Windrose at Woburn
"Getting Your Ducks in a Row - Protecting Yourself and Loved Ones in Crisis -- Estate Planning & Guardian/Conservatorship "

On Tuesday, May 2nd Windrose at Woburn will offer a free Elder Law presentation by Certified Elder Law Attorney Patrick Curley of Curley Law Firm LLP in Wakefield.

Entitled "Getting Your Ducks in a Row - Protecting Yourself and Loved Ones in Crisis -- Estate Planning & Guardian/Conservatorship". The presentation will take place at Windrose at Woburn, 857 Main Street, Woburn, at 6:30 p.m. A light dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m.

Attorney Curley stated, "most seniors have not done the legal planning necessary to protect themselves against the ‘what if’ scenarios in the future. Often they are bombarded with conflicting advice from folks who are not experts in this area of law. This presentation will help seniors and their families learn their lawful options so they can make informed decisions for the future. The key here is that seniors are living longer than ever before – but often requiring assistance as they age – so it is imperative that seniors and their loved ones educate themselves about their planning options and resources to better age with dignity and peace of mind."

Attorney Curley is one of just 23 Certified Elder Law Attorneys in the Commonwealth. Achieving this distinction is rare because it requires years of focused Estate Planning and Elder Law practice, peer references from Elder Law experts, dozens of hours of continuing education, and passing a rigorous full-day bar-style exam covering 12 Elder Law categories, as well as vigorous re-certifications every five years.

Attendees must RSVP to Windrose at Woburn at 781.935.3333.

Attorney Curley will lead the panel discussion with regard to the legal planning seniors need to help protect their independence and their savings.

He will be joined on the panel by Certified Financial Planner Quentara Costa of Powwow, LLC, and Senior Real Estate Specialists Jennifer St. Onge and Robyn Rehan of Keller Williams.

"Attendees will be able to draw on the collective expertise of legal, financial and real estate specialists who successfully advise and assist seniors every day," said Attorney Curley. "The key here is that seniors are living longer than ever before – but often requiring assistance as they age – so it is imperative that seniors and their loved ones educate themselves about their planning options and resources to better age with dignity and peace of mind."

Limited seats are available so please reserve a space for you and a guest by calling Bayberry at Emerald Court at 978.640.0194. Complimentary hors d'oeuvres will be served at 5:30 p.m.

"Protect Yourself and Your Assets"

If you have a health crisis, are you prepared? Without careful estate planning, your loved ones may be forced into a stressful and costly Conservatorship and Guardianship Court process to gain authority to make legal, financial and medical decisions for you. Upon your death, did you realize Probate can take more than one year and impose its own share of stress and costs on your loved ones?

Save your loved ones these unnecessary costs, stresses, and delays by doing proper Estate Planning today. It is never too late to plan to control your own future! Seniors and their families owe it to themselves to learn their lawful options so they can make an informed decision on how best to protect themselves and their assets.

Certified Elder Law Attorney Patrick Curley of Curley Law Firm LLP in Wakefield will teach attendees (1) how most Durable Power of Attorney documents are inadequate and what authority yours must contain to be adequate, (2) the difference between Irrevocable and Revocable Trusts and why you may want to consider one or both, and (3) why failing to take advantage of lawful planning strategies today can leave you and your assets exposed in the future, and what action you should take to protect yourself.

Attorney Curley is one of just 24 Certified Elder Law Attorneys in the Commonwealth. Achieving this distinction is rare because it requires years of focused Estate Planning and Elder Law practice, peer references from Elder Law experts, dozens of hours of continuing legal education, and passing a rigorous full-day bar-style exam covering 12 Elder Law categories, as well as re-certifications every five years.

The presentation is ideal for seniors, the children of seniors, or anyone else interested in learning about Estate Planning and Asset Protection. To reserve a space, please RSVP to Curley Law Firm LLP at 781.245.2222 or [email protected].
