How can you and your loved one with Parkinson’s disease plan for the future? Parkinson’s disease can require planning for both long- and short-term costs of medication, home adaptations, insurance, estate-planning documents and other healthcare-related needs. Learn practical tips related to modifying aspects of estate and financial planning by joining a one-hour PDF web seminar.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Understand the legal documents people with Parkinson’s and their care partners may need as they plan for a future with the disease.
  • Understand how legal documents can be modified or tailored to better address the challenges of living with Parkinson’s disease.
  • Understand why legal documents alone are not enough to protect people with Parkinson’s disease and their care partners, and learn practical steps for increasing protection.
  • Understand how Parkinson’s disease may affect financial planning, investing and tax planning.
  • Learn practical steps for building a financial, estate and legal safety net to protect you or a loved one as Parkinson’s disease progresses.
