Aging In Place, Is It Really An Option?
"How can my parents age in place and get the services they need?"
"I'm afraid the money is going to run out, then what?"
"They need more help and I promised I would never "send them" to a nursing home!"

These are questions I get every week from stressed family members trying to do the right thing for their loved ones. I understand. It can be scary. I'm here to say, you are not alone. There are thousands of West Michigan families grappling with these same questions.
The good news is, there are options! There are answers! But, you need to educate yourself and do the homework. I invite you to take the first step. Join us for a Medicaid Options workshop.

I have been asked to share my expertise with families in the Appledorn community in Holland. This event is free and open to the public.
Tuesday, October 16th from 7:00pm - 8:30pm
630 Hastings Ave., Holland

Sadly, Aunt Mildred passed away. She always said I'd be getting something in her will. What most people do not realize is that getting that "something" will take time. And how much time it takes depends on the planning they did or didn't do before death.

Topics Covered:
  • Understanding your Rights as a Beneficiary
  • What are the Responsibilities of the Personal Representative and Trustee?
  • Expected Timelines for Probate and Trust Administration
  • Common Misconceptions about Probate

This event is an opportunity for the community to learn more about the impact Meals on Wheels Western Michigan continues to make in the lives of older adults. Lunch is prepared and served by their very own kitchen staff. The program includes a compelling panel discussion that thoroughly explains why Meals on Wheels is “more than a meal”. This lunch is complimentary, however we hope that after hearing the mission, you will feel moved to leave a gift. If you would like to be seated at our "hosted table", please EMAIL your name and number of attendees who will share a meal with David.
