Sometimes, life comes at you F A S T!

Are you prepared for the unexpected?

How do YOU want it handled “when….”  When what?  When…. you can’t drive anymore; when you find yourself a caregiver but are not well yourself; when you know your spouse needs community living but you’re pretty sure you can’t afford it; or when you’re not okay to be home alone anymore!

If we’re not prepared, we can end up making decisions without full information because we just don’t know what we don’t know.  In rough times, choices are often limited.  Decisions become complicated.

Join us to learn options, resources, and conversations you need to have, as well as questions you need to ask, to help you discover how you DO want it handled when…. there’s a detour in the road.

Whether you’re reeling from an unexpected change in health or circumstance, or you want and need to be proactively prepared because you don’t want to be caught in a reactive situation – this conference is for you, and your family – parents or adult children!

Uncover what your specific needs are with our panel of speakers, experts in their fields. Scroll down to see the speakers and topics below.

The take-aways from this conference are tips, tools, techniques and resources from our speakers and support services who’ll be providing the answers to questions you don’t know to ask!  This information will help you to make better decisions when you don’t know what to do, or where to turn, first.
