Orland Fire’s popular Coffee & Conversation resumes with virtual online meetings
The Orland Fire Protection District will resume the popular and monthly Coffee & Conversation monthly meetings for residents and especially seniors in the Fire District. The event is co-hosted by Aishling Companion Home Care and participation does require downloading an App to permit your access and reaching out to OFPD organizer Betsy Dine
Please join the Orland Fire Protection District for the resumption of their monthly and popular Coffee & Conversation series in which experts in senior issues discuss everything from home care, wills and health.
The next Coffee & Conversation will be held on May 28, 2020 from 10 AM until 11:30 AM using online computer technology. Each participate will be given a code to use the 3CX FREE APP for our virtual meeting.
The May 28 speaker is Gwendolyn Sterk, an attorney who will lead a discussion about “the second time around, unique Issues with Second Marriages.”
Ms. Sterk will navigate through unique concerns of seniors who are re-married. Dealing with children of the other spouse, clarifying where money will go in the event of death, determining who will provide care and have decision making authority in the event of illness or disability, and planning for retirement are all issues that must be discussed and determined. Blindly ignoring these issues can have grave consequences. This program will empower you to consider how to deal with and avoid complications that may arise by providing tools to utilize and food for thought.
The Coffees are co-sponsored by Aishling Companion Home Care, Inc., 13255 Southwest Highway, Suite 200, Orland Park.
