Long-Term Care Workshop in Fayetteville

The North Carolina Senior Citizens Association Invites Seniors and Veterans To A Long-Term Care Workshop

    The North Carolina Senior Citizens Association will sponsor an educational workshop on long-term care on Tuesday, January 29, at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm at the Holiday Inn Bordeaux in Fayetteville. The event is free and open to the public.

     Representatives at the workshop will include a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, a Veterans Administration accredited attorney, plus NCSCA Medicare, Medicaid, and long-term care advisors. Under the Affordable Care Act, millions of American seniors and veterans will be newly eligible to receive quality, affordable health care through financial assistance in the new health insurance marketplaces.

It is important to learn how to protect the family home and life savings from the high cost of long-term care expenses. The law governing the protection of assets from long-term care expenses has dramatically changed. Workshop attendees will learn some of the biggest mistakes families make and how to avoid them, and strategies for dealing with such issues as estate planning, gifting money to children, reducing out-of-pocket care expenses, and dealing with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, dementia or multiple sclerosis. They will also learn that many veterans and their spouses can qualify for a little-known VA benefit to help them stay at home and out of the nursing home, or to pay for assisted living expenses. The benefit ranges from $1,094 a month for widows to about $2,019 a month for couples.

Due to the popularity of this workshop, seating is limited. Reservations are on a first come, first served basis. To Register or receive FREE information – Click Here To Register
