Two free workshops will be presented June 25 on the subject of life planning for seniors, their families and their caregivers.
The workshops are based on the "Handbook for Washington Seniors: Legal Rights and Resources," published in 2012 by Legal Voice, a nonprofit organization.
Retired attorney Anne Bradley Counts of Seattle will explain powers of attorney, advance directives and a checklist for life planning. She also will describe steps people can take to document their intentions for their health care, property, and how they want to be honored after they die.
The workshops, which include time for questions and answers, will be 10:30 a.m. to noon at Bellingham Senior Activity Center, 315 Halleck St., room 16, and 1:30 to 3 p.m. at Ferndale Senior Activity Center, 1999 Cherry St.
The handbook will be available for purchase for $10 on paper or $5 on CD. It also can be ordered at tinyurl.com/order-handbook.
