This is an often overlooked part of retirement planning. Many people prefer to avoid discussions about aging, needing care and passing away.  However it's a fact of life and avoiding the discussion doesn't make the problem disappear.  This workshop helps attendees plan for aging in retirement and discusses ways to protect themselves, their assets and their loved ones.
