Attorney Matthew Karr Presents a Free Legal Seminar for Seniors at the Hamilton Council on Aging

November 12, 6:30 p.m.

Hamilton, Mass., — Research shows that at least 70 percent of people over 65 will need long-term care services and support at some point in their lifetime. Massachusetts’s long-term care costs currently average over $10,000 per month. With these numbers, failing to plan truly is preparing to fail.

In a free seminar at the Hamilton Council on Aging (299 Bay Road, South Hamilton on T​hursday, November 12, at 6:30 p.m.)​attorney Matthew Karr will describe what happens when families don’t plan for the worst. More important, Matthew will help seniors take charge and ensure that their goals and decisions are respected and their assets protected.

At this free seminar, attendees will learn:

  • ➢  How to ensure your decisions regarding health care and finances are respected ifsomething happens to you.
  • ➢  How to avoid nursing home placement as long as possible utilizing community resources.
  • ➢  How to make sure that your assets are protected and available to your family. How youcan keep the court system out of your decision-making and your wallet. How to qualify for long-term care benefits and avoid “Nursing Home Poverty.”

    Whether a family is facing long-term care choices now or smartly preparing for future success, Matthew will help you craft an effective estate and long-term care plan so that families are protected. Karr reiterates, “Planning is crucial in this area of the law. So I want families to act now and be informed so that they might have a better tomorrow.”
