We support the San Diego community with estate planning and long term care needs, regardless of economic resources because we believe it is more important than ever to be informed and empowered, in order to create stability for yourself and your family and provide a legacy for future generations.

Here’s more information about our first of many complimentary monthly events (webinars, podcasts and workshops) that will cover trending topics with industry leaders to help educate and give the tools needed. We hope you’ll join us!

In this webinar, Aging Life Care Professional and clinical social worker Susan Valoff will examine the pros and cons of care at home versus assisted living and provide you with an important list of questions to ask care providers as you evaluate your options in the time of COVID-19.

During the pandemic, many older and disabled adults and their families are weighing their long-term care options a bit differently than usual. Questions about infection control, quality of life, and avoiding social isolation are at the forefront of people’s minds, including:

  • Where is the best location to care for my loved one?
  • How can my family member and I thrive while living through this time of uncertainty?
  • If I move my loved one home, am I prepared to care for them?
  • What type of care can we afford?
