Session 2 – Legal Strategies to Protect and Preserve Your Assets
As most caregivers know, long-term care can be extremely expensive. What is the best way to provide your loved one with quality care while also preserving and protecting assets? Have you ever wondered if your loved one needs a trust? Would a lady bird deed be a solution for you? This workshop will introduce you to legal strategies to help plan for long-term care costs.
