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.
