Individuals concerned about their own long-term care solutions, about their care needs, about aging parents, caring for disabled children, or who have concerns about a diagnosis for themselves or a loved one of dementia, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, may find this seminar particularly useful. There is no charge for attendance. Mr. Gilfix’s Special Needs Trust Management and Creation Guide is also available to attendees at no charge, while supplies last.
