      2019 Sussex C.A.R.E.S. Conference -

      Please join us for the annual Sussex CARES Conference, which is being held on May 9, 2019, at Crossroad Community Church in Georgetown, DE. This partial-day event is being offered free of charge by the Sussex Advisory Committee on Aging & Adults with Physical Disabilities. Lunch is provided. The title of this year’s Conference is “Getting Your Ducks in a Row: Preparing for Life’s Final Chapter.”

      Did you know only 40% of Americans have planned for life’s final chapter? At the Conference, you will learn how to ensure your wishes are carried out. We will start with a keynote address by Master Patricia W. Griffin, who will discuss the Court’s role in adult guardianship and estate matters. Then, two panels will explore the importance of foundational estate planning, including Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Advance Health Care Directives, along with other hot topics, like planning for pets, including charities in your end-of-life plan, dealing with the distribution of your tangible property, and more! Being prepared and taking care of your family are some things you must have on your bucket list!
