“Double Complexity – Elderly Parents Caring For Adult Children with Mental Illness”

Planning for an adult special needs individual is even more complex now as the parents, as caregivers, are facing their own life planning challenges. Aging parents are facing declining physical and mental health. Their need for long term care and their inability to make financial decisions requires additional planning. Further, turbulent economic conditions, changes in the Medicaid and health care laws, as well as estate planning laws require re-assessing their current plan. The speakers will review the current planning challenges and will address frequently asked questions.


  •  How do we take care of our needs in addition to providing care for our loved ones?
  • How do we protect our assets for the surviving family members in the event of our own Long-Term Care needs?
  • Will my Long-Term Care insurance and Medicare be enough to pay for my Long-Term care expenses?
  • What are my child’s future housing options?
  • What is the role of a Geriatric Care Manager?
  • What is the Able Act?

We urge all Family Members to attend with the adult children and future trustees
