Wednesday, Feb. 22, 2017 -- The Meadows at Glenwyck, an independent senior living community located at 150 Dutch Meadows Lane (just behind WalMart) in Glenville, will host a presentation titled, “Getting Your Legal and Financial Affairs in Order” on Tuesday, March 28 at 11 a.m.
Elderlaw attorney JulieAnn Calareso, Esq., Burke & Casserly, P.C., will discuss basic documents that will enable attendees to have family members honor their wishes and carry out their instructions for asset management and health care choices.
Calareso, who is a principal at the firm, will also talk about the differences between a health care proxy, living will, a DNR order, Medical Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (MOLST), and power of attorney. In addition, she will review various approaches for distributing wealth, common misconceptions about estate planning, and planning for the future so that your final wishes are carried out.
A graduate of Albany Law School of Union University, Calareso focuses her practice on elder law, wills and trusts, estate administration and probate, special needs planning, and corporation and business formation and succession planning.
She currently serves as chair of the New York State Bar Association’s Elder Law and Special Needs section and also represents the New York State Bar Association on a statewide initiative formed in collaboration with the New York State Office for the Aging charged with recommending changes to make New York’s legal system more accessible to that population.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Reserve your place by calling (518) 280-7340. Light refreshments will be served.
