15 WAYS TO AVOID MAKING YOUR KIDS ANGRY AFTER YOU DIE (Or before)
 
 
 
 
Come join us  on February 2nd, 2023 from 10:00 to 11:30 in the ballroom for an informative seminar about practical things to do NOW, that will make things so much better for your children and remaining loved ones after you die or as you decline. Learn practical things that will avoid family stress, arguments, and chaos. Everyone (hopefully) has a will and a medical directive, but is that enough? IT IS NOT! So we are very fortunate to have panelists from BRAG, The Braselton Resource and Advocacy Group for Seniors. There will be representatives from a Senior Living Facility, a Geriatric Care Management Co., an Estate Planning and Advanced Directives group and a Funeral Director. They will speak from first hand knowledge of what they have learned from children and loved ones in caring for seniors as they decline and after death. They are not here to sell us anything. Their wisdom can really help us prepare for our natural aging and death. I bet they will share things you never knew or thought of!!! Come join us. All are welcome. Light refreshments and snacks will  be available. Please RSVP to Janet Cuccinello at  janetcucc@msn.com.
