Event Date: Jul 10, 2018
Whether one is healthy, or coping with a chronic illness such as MS, planning for aging and long term care needs is an ever-present, but too often an unmet need. Long term planning can easily be put on the shelf, when families are faced with trying to survive more pressing daily challenges—such as how to get the food shopping done or getting the most out of a medical appointment.
This webinar will provide practical tips on planning for and meeting both the little and big planning challenges that face us all—from when is the right time to retire, to re-evaluating your location, to an easy way to keep your advance directive current. Helpful resources will also be provided.
This session is hosted by the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada
