Cooley Dickinson VNA & Hospice
Saturday, May 2, at 2 PM
This talk will cover the basics of Palliative Care: What is Palliative Care? Who receives Palliative Care? Where are Palliative Care Services provided? Who provides Palliative Care?
Hospice and palliative medicine is devoted to achieving the best possible quality of life for a patient and their family throughout the course of a life-threatening illness through the relief of suffering and the control of symptoms. Hospice and palliative medicine helps the patient and family face the prospect of death assured that comfort will be a priority, values and decisions will be respected, and spiritual and psycho-social needs will be addressed
|Wills & Trusts, with Attorney Richard Evans|
The Basics of Wills and Trusts
with Attorney Richard Evans
Saturday, May 9, at 2 PM
If you're going to leave or inherit anything, Attorney Richard Evans will cover the basics of wills and trusts.
Preparing for the distribution of your estate (assets you own at the time of your death) can be a very stressful experience. After all, with so many important decisions to make, no one wants to make the wrong one. One of the most common dilemmas is whether to have a will or a living trust – or both. Knowing the fundamentals of each will help you make the right decision.
Richard M. Evans has practiced law in western Massachusetts for over 35 years, concentrating in the representation of non-profit state and regional land conservation organizations.
