Legal Care for Living with ALS
Presented by Helen Mesoloras, JD 
Elder and Disability Attorney and Partner with Dutton & Casey, Attorneys at Law

When a diagnosis of a chronic medical condition is given, not only do you need to prepare medically, you need to prepare legally. This session will address important topics such as Powers of Attorney, Living Trusts and Wills. What legal options are available in planning and paying for long-term care? How can Medicare, Medicaid, long-term care insurance and personal care contracts maximize a person’s quality of life? The ultimate goal is to develop a plan and to understand why plans can (and should) be revised over time so you can assume a proactive role when it comes to legal matters.
