Volunteer Chore Program
Presented by Abby Lund
Opportunity Council/Volunteer Center
Join Abby as she discusses the Volunteer Chore Program through the Opportunity Council. This program helps low-income seniors and adults with disabilities throughout Whatcom County with basic essential tasks so that they can continue living in their own homes. They match volunteers to help with light housework, yard care, small home repairs and essential transportation to medical appointments and the grocery store. They serve as a safety net for those who don’t have the income to pay for services and don’t have friends or family that can help. They can be a great resource to seniors and adults with disabilities in our community and can also offer meaningful volunteer opportunities that happen on a flexible basis and work with a volunteer’s schedule. Sometimes, just an hour a week can make the difference between living independently or having to move into Assisted Living or a Nursing home.

How Traditional Planning Fails Retirees
Presented by Rajiv Nagaich
and Phillip George, Attorneys at Law
Johnson & Nagaich, P.S.
Today’s retirees experience longer lifespans than any previous generation. This means retirees are facing new threats stemming from uncovered medical and long term care expenses. Traditional
estate planning doesn’t help retirees prepare for these new and challenging retirement conditions, which may even leave a retiree headed for bankruptcy!
If you are one of these retirees or are thinking about retirement, please attend this seminar.
We can help you with all of these:
· Protect your assets from estate taxes and uncovered medical and long term costs;
· Plan for a better housing solution and avoid institutional care if possible;
· Avoid becoming a burden on your loved ones during retirement.
