Ready for the next phase of adulting?
Congratulations from the staff at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center.You've finally mastered being an adult.
It has taken years, but you understand escrow and have conquered the skill of moving funds around your bank accounts through online banking.
You learned the hard way that, while you hate to rake leaves, if left on the lawn they will block sun from reaching the new grass, and kill it.
As an adult you now know to attach a garden hose to the spigot at the base of the water heater to drain the tank.
You have conquered this adulting thing!
But then life changes and as you age adulting gets hard and you have questions.
When do I need to seek the advice of an elder law attorney? What does an elder law attorney do? Am I too young to need the services of an elder law attorney?
Do I have enough money to utilize a financial advisor?
What is a reverse mortgage?
Let's say you don't want to move from your home: Are you aware of the financial and human resources you will need when you can't drain the water heater any longer?
There are experts that can help you redesign your home for safety so you can live longer in your own home. The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center will host a presentation from 10 a.m. to noon Tuesday, May 7 titled "Old Age & Power: Get it Together Now" to help seniors master the next phase of adulting. The program is free; call the center to register.
