-A A +A

The Providence Richwood in La Grange is offering the following classes:

Tuesday Aug. 19 at 7 p.m.: Legal Documents presentation by Kentucky ElderLaw Attorneys.

What is the single greatest gift you can give your family as you age? The peace of mind that you have arranged for your affairs to be handled to the best of your ability should you get sick or pass away. That means having strong, useful legal documents in place. Many people do not realize that not even their spouse or children can act on their behalf without a Power of Attorney. And they do not know that if they die, their spouse may not get everything they own unless they have a will saying that will happen. The attorneys at Kentucky ElderLaw help people understand Powers of Attorney, Wills, Trusts, Living Wills, Health Care Surrogate documents and make the decisions that help them and their families sleep better at night.

Tuesday Sept. 23 at 7 p.m.: Understanding your Medicare Benefits by Barcelona Health Solutions.

Barcellona Health Solutions specializes in helping people understand their Medicare rights and options. Knowing your options when it comes to Medicare can save you from costly penalties in the future.

Tuesday Oct. 21 at 7 p.m.: Understanding VA and Medicaid Benefits by Kentucky ElderLaw Attorneys.

How will you pay for your long-term care? That is the question that has people wringing their hands. There are benefits that can help pay. Find out from the attorneys at Kentucky ElderLaw how VA benefits can help wartime veterans and their surviving spouses pay for in-home care, assisted living or a nursing home, even if the veteran never saw combat or served overseas. And learn what happens to your home and other assets if you need to apply for Medicaid to pay for a nursing home.

All classes held at Providence Richwood 1012 Richwood Way La Grange, Ky. 40031.
