July 10, 2019 Lunch and Learn 11:30 am to 1:00 pm

    Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail.

    A lack of necessary documents or outdated documents can be very costly, inconvenient, and in some cases, with results that are contrary to what a person might ultimately want after they have passed.  Join the experts from Jordan Balkema Elder Law Center as they explain what wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and patient advocate agreements are and why they are so important.The JBELC team will also touch briefly on long-term care and how planning ahead for that can be a big relief to clients, as well as their family.

    This event will take place at

    Hampton Inn
    15320 Waldron Way
    Big Rapids

    RSVP is required by calling (231) 796-7649 or events@mecostacounty.com
