Caregivers often struggle with the many financial and legal issues involved with caring for an aging family
member. This topic can be extremely complex and very personal. It is also one of the most difficult to cope
with as a caregiver and is often done in times of high stress and anxiety. Many caregivers are faced with
decisions that their parents or partners avoided or repeatedly delayed making. Sometimes caregivers have
to make decisions on their own after a crisis or medical problem suddenly occurs. Caregivers don’t always
have the resources and finances to pay for the care they feel obligated to provide their loved one, and
often don’t know where to turn to for help.
The Families in Transition Caregiver’s Education & Support Group and the Emory WorkLife Resource
Center have collaborated together to host a workshop titled, Questions & Answers Surrounding Elder Law
This question & answer session will be led by Heather Durham Nadler, P.C., and member of the National
Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. The workshop will be held on Thursday, November 5, 2009 from 12-1:30
PM at the Rita Anne Rollins School of Public Health, Room 864.
Please feel comfortable in bringing your lunch and joining others to learn about the complex issues
surrounding elder law. Space is limited at this workshop so please register early. If you have questions
