Langley Lodge lecture covers death on Tuesday

 

Death is not a topic anyone wants to think about but making plans in the event of death, such as having a valid will, helps provide peace of mind.

The next free education seminar hosted by Langley Lodge features some heady topics.

The guest presenter on Tuesday, Oct. 21 is Meghan Shaw, the regional consultant for the province’s Public Guardian and Trustee.

She will be providing valuable information regarding personal planning such as power of attorney, wills, estates, and advance planning.

Today’s seniors are keen to learn more about protecting their health and finances. Seniors and middle-aged adults will benefit from the series, and will be more knowledgeable when they start to plan for their future health care decisions and financial security.

The focus is to provide free education for local citizens, on topics relevant to seniors and aging, primarily concerning health and wellness.

All guest speakers are qualified professionals who donate their time, to allow Langley Lodge to host the series for free to the general public.

Organizers ask that people sign up in advance at 604-532-4217 or with the lodge reception desk at 604-530-2305. People can also sign up via email to sthirsk@langleylodge.org.

It is located at 5451 204th St. There is free parking available in front of the facility and on the street.
