Free Educational Series

Elder law covers the legal needs of the elderly and people who are planning ahead for their aging. In January, the Aging & Disability Resource Center of Central Wisconsin will begin another "Wellness Wednesday" series on financial and legal issues.

The series speaker is Janet Lattyak, attorney from Lattyak Elder Law in Schofield. This free series runs from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays at the Resource Center, 1000 Lakeview Drive, Wausau. Reservations are preferred; call 261-6070.

The schedule is:

Jan. 21: Advance Directives -- Health Care; co-presented by Tim Moe, Aspirus social worker.

Feb. 18: Advance Directives -- Financial / Burial/ Funeral.

March 18: Medicaid Planning -- Legal Perspective.

April 22: Wills.

May 13: Probate. Note: No legal advice is provided.

In these challenging times, with economic hardships being faced by the aging population trying to live within limited incomes, this free educational series will be a great benefit to elders in the greater Wausau region.

Sounds like a good plan and gives lawyers a way to earn a buck but we know there are folks called guardians who can trash all legal documents - just like that - poof, the guardian makes all decisions!
