On Thursday, Nov. 7, 2013, at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., White’s Funeral Homes will be hosting advance planning seminars dealing with a variety of key topics for seniors. 

“It’s important for families to be prepared in case of emergency,” said Bob White, of White’s Funeral Homes. “We see it every day, how families have to cope when they are unprepared. There’s a lot of stress and anxiety compounded by grief and doubt. There’s so much that can be done ahead of time to spare loved ones from needless pain and worry.”

The seminars will feature local attorney, Gary Jordan, who will discuss wills, estate plans, powers of attorney, and living wills, how they work and who benefits most from these legal tools.

Another featured speaker will be Larry Pearce, Medicaid Specialist, will cover recent changes to federal guidelines for Medicaid. How will the new rules and guidelines affect you and your loved ones?

Leon Stone, prearrangement specialist, will speak on funeral plans and how you can alleviate financial and emotional burdens for your family at the time of loss simply by planning in advance.
