Learning at Lunch: Caring for Senior Parents

Friday, April 26
12:00 pm to 01:00 pm

Seniors walking

The number of seniors needing care is expected to double over the next 15 years.  More than 1 million caregivers in Canada are themselves over the age of 65.  
There is rarely any training for family members about how to help their senior parents through issues with their health, personal or financial care. Caregivers often stumble their way through the learning process, and they can often find themselves in difficulty because they unintentionally made a serious mistake.
 
This talk will explain three key elements that every caregiver needs to know when helping their senior parents:
what the role of caregiver means legally
the importance of keeping assets separate and safeguarded
reporting requirements - what you need to keep track of
 
Are you ready to face the challenge?
