Foundation for Senior Care will co-host an education seminar with one of California’s leading Elder Law Attorneys, Richard Scott Stewart, Esq. of California Estate and Elder Law. The no-cost seminar entitled, “Caregiver Economics” is on Monday, June 10 from noon until 1:30 at the Christ the King Church located at 1620 S. Stage Coach Ln. in Fallbrook. While there is no charge for the session, registration is required since space is limited, and lunch will be provided. To register, call 760-723-7570 or go online to scinstitute.org/fscc/.
“Families confronting the costs of impending long-term care for a loved one often believe that it is too late to plan and that they must bear these costs on their own,” Mr. Stewart noted. “Though this may have been true ten or twenty years ago, that is not the law now. There are legal tools available to protect your assets. It’s never too late to plan. And since accidents and illnesses can strike younger family members, it is also never too early.”
This is the second of four sessions co-hosted by The Foundation for Senior Care and The California Estate and Elder Law, LLP office. It is offered to everyone in the community interested in understanding their family’s planning options.
“The attorneys at the California Estate and Elder Law office have provided advice to our Care Advocates on behalf of our clients for years,” noted Darlene Weber, Care Advocate and Door-Through-Door Coordinator. “We are grateful to them for taking the time to provide these educational sessions and encourage residents to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about their options directly from the foremost elder-law experts.”
Richard Scott Stewart is the incoming co-chair of the San Diego County Bar Association Elder Law section. He conducts educational seminars for financial advisors and other professionals involved in elder law issues. He has concentrated his practice on solving the legal problems affecting California seniors, including MediCal benefit law, estate planning and asset protection and retention. He has also written and co-authored numerous books and articles on asset protection and estate planning strategies. The California Estate and Elder Law firm was named “Best Estate Planners in San Diego” in 2017 by Seattle research firm, “Expertise”.
“I enjoy practicing in this area of law because it gives me an opportunity to help a segment of our population escape from the financial ruin that can result from a stay in a nursing home,” Mr. Stewart said. “Helping a family in need, when all seems lost, affords me personal rewards that no other area of law can offer.”
The California Estate and Elder Law, LLP offers full spectrum planning – from estate planning to elder care planning, to estate settlement – helping families preserve both their assets and their relationships. Find out more at http://estate-elderlaw.com.
