Oklahoma City elder law attorneys at Parman & Easterday help seniors address issues that matter when it comes to being prepared for the future. This can include making a legacy plan, creating a plan to afford nursing home care, and taking steps to be prepared for incapacity.
Many of the issues that seniors need to be prepare for are difficult to think about because no one likes to think about getting seriously ill or passing away. Yet, it is important for seniors to take a realistic approach to preparing for the future. Parman & Easterday is here to provide the personalized assistance that seniors need to help with this process.
As News Oklahoma wrote, many seniors are also getting help addressing sensitive issues and fears about aging as a result of a seminar program that is being operated. This seminar program is focused on Telling it Like it Is.
Senior Seminar Program Addresses Important Truths for Seniors
According to News Oklahoma, the Telling it Like it Is seminar program was developed as a concept by two real estate professionals who were specialized senior living realtors. The husband-and-wife team of realtors discovered that many of the senior clients they worked with had shared challenges, common questions, and similar fears about aging. Many of the concerns of seniors weren’t being addressed and their older clients did not know where to turn.
To provide help and support, the couple created the Senior Living Truth Series, a set of tell-it-like-it-is seminars that would help seniors become empowered to live their retirement years “on their own terms,” as News Oklahoma wrote.
The Senior Living Truth Series was established as a monthly educational series. The series became widely successful, with a group of committed sponsors coming together to help the series grow and with “regulars” who attended the events sharing information about the series with other seniors. Close to 200 people now attend the Senior Living Truth Series seminars, which is a significant increase since the first seminar which was attended by just 45 people.
The seminars not only provide information to seniors but also bring together experts and older people on an even playing field and serve as a community builder that helps seniors come together to gather with their friends as they address difficult issues together.
Presenters include experts and fellow seniors who have gone through some of the same challenges as the audience attendees. Seniors indicate that seeing people who have gone through what they are coping with has proved reassuring and has given them more insight into making big decisions like whether they should sell their homes or should stay where they are currently living.
