Ventura Parkinson’s Disease Support Group

What can I do to prepare for my partner’s care if he/she suddenly becomes ill beyond my ability to care for by myself; how do I protect my partner’s wishes and our assets? What are the benefits of planning for the unexpected and “final care” now, what are the options in our area?

The Ventura Parkinson’s Disease Support Group will host Debra Mansfield, Owner of The Lynd Group at their meeting Wednesday, March 8 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at The Lexington Assisted Living, 5440 Ralston St. Public welcome, no admission fee.

The best time to talk and plan for long term and final care is before you need it. Over 70% of Americans over the age of 65 will need care beyond what family can provide and the average stay in a care facility is 3 years; will Medicare cover that cost and if not, what can one do to protect one’s finances?

Come find some answers about care giving choices, and alternatives at this meeting. Debra has recent personal experience with “the assisted living care system” and has the most recent developments in long term care to share with us. She and The Lynd Group have been helping the community plan for their financial futures since 2009. Debra also has a personal connection to Parkinson’s disease.
