Upcoming Workshop Series for Caregivers

By: Audrey Adelson, MSW, WLCP

Come checkout the last workshop of the fall caregiver series sponsored by The Emory WorkLife Resource Center. As done in years past, these workshops are designed to help employees and their families manage some of the most common and complex issues pertaining to caring for an aging or sick adult. Caregivers, who are often working full-time and raising a family of their own, can easily become overwhelmed trying to understand and navigate “the system.” These workshops provide caregivers guidance and empower them with more control.

A new caregiver workshop series will be announced after the first of the year. The workshops will help employees in the various stages of the caregiving process by explaining the dynamics involved and providing education to empower them in their role as a caregiver.

 

Legal Issues Surrounding Death & Incapacity: Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney

How can financial and medical decisions be made if I become unable to make decisions for myself? Is Guardianship necessary? Do I need a Trust? Should I try to avoid Probate? Do I really need a Will? Can I write my own Will? The answers to these and many more questions will be addressed in this important planning workshop.
