Asheboro attorney and elder law expert Bob Mason will reprise his popular series of seminars on the many legal issues facing the elderly and their families. Sessions will take place on three consecutive Mondays in April at the Asheboro Public Library.
The seminars, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, are free and the public is invited.
The first session, at 2 p.m. April 8, covers essentials such as wills and trusts, powers of attorney, health care advance directives, insurance, second marriages, planning for a child with disabilities, and laying the ground work for long term care planning.
The next session, 2 p.m. April 15, addresses the costs of nursing home care (nearing $7,000 monthly in many facilities).
The third session, 2 p.m. April 22, covers the VA Aid and Attendance program, a great benefit for certain veterans or widows of veterans that most people either are unaware of or do not understand.
Mason is a Board Certified Specialist in Elder Law by the North Carolina Board of Legal Specialization, and both past and incoming chairman of the Elder Law Section of the North Carolina Bar. He also is an author and frequent lecturer on elder law/special needs law topics.
The library is located at 201 Worth Street in Asheboro.
