Senior Law Day educates with expert discussion

Senior Citizens, their adult children, and all those interested in the challenging issues posed by the aging process, are invited to attend Senior Law Day, a free, half-day community outreach program sponsored by the Northern Neck Bar Association on Saturday, May 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Colonial Beach High School, 100 First St., Colonial Beach.
Topics will include better understanding Medicaid eligibility and how that may affect you; consideration of important estate planning issues and the need for advanced health-matters planning that all Seniors should be aware of; how to recognize and prevent fraud against Seniors; an introduction to the community services provided by TRIAD; an informative discussion on the function and range of services provided by Hospice; and a light-hearted look at funeral planning.
Presenters include Attorney R. Shawn Majette of  Thompson McMullan Law Firm in Richmond, Virginia; Attorney James Alfred Butts, IV, of Rumsey & Bugg in White Stone, Virginia; Christopher Spare, Chief of Police, Warsaw. Chief Spare will discuss the TRIAD partnership between law enforcement and seniors.; Special Agent W. Chris Palicia of the Virginia State Police, Christel Lewis Earles, M.S.W., of Tappahannock Riverside Hospice; and Thomas Gale, Director of Curie Funeral Home, in Kilmarnock. They have received state- wide recognition for past events.
In addition to an exceptional program, good fellowship, and a free catered box lunch, all those attending will receive their own copy of the information-filled Senior Citizen’s Guidebook, a valuable resource published by the Virginia State Bar, Senior Lawyer Conference.  This is the fifth Senior Law Day program to be presented by the Northern Neck Bar Association since 2007; and is an opportunity that should not be missed.
