CT Seminar for 'Sandwhich Generation'

A seminar on the “sandwich generation” will take place Wednesday, Oct. 7, from 6:30 to 8:30 at the Ridgefield Library.

This seminar offers knowledge and practical tools to make sound decisions about aging parents.

Speakers are Judge Joe Egan, probate judge; Laura Switzer, senior care manager for Ridgefield VNA; Anne Fowler-Cruz, certified elder law attorney; Joyce Kuhn, assistance vice president of Ridgefield Bank; Linda Duff, admissions and finance director of Laurel Ridge; Terri Ramsey, senior harbor program director at Ridgefield Crossings; Kristi Vaughan and Deborah Durkee, Realtors of William Pitt Sotheby’s; and moderator Geri Hotard, Ridgefield VNA member and chair of Quality Living at Home.

Warning to Baby Boomers: Whatever you do - don't put your parents into guardianship - it is one of today's tragedies. Guardians are raiding the asssets of the incapacitated, with court permission!

Keep peace within the family to avoid forced guardianship.

I hope CT NASGA members can attend this seminar and speak up to the problems of conservatorship abuse.

Judge Joe Egan should be discussing guardianship and how it family disputes should be solved outside of the court so as not to open up the door for a lifetime sentence of guardianship.

Hello. I definitely agree that such seminats should be attended by many people. As a realtor I visit many homes and I can see the problem of "sandwich generation" in many families, people just don't talk about it. So I'm really appreciate that such seminars take place.
Wishing all the best,
