Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly to Host Oct. 4 Seminar on End-of-Life Issues...If you have questions about end-of-life planning, turn to Little Brothers – Friends of the Elderly (LBFE) for help. “Are You Prepared? A Seminar on End-of-Life Issues,” will feature a panel of experts who will answer questions about legal issues, senior services, hospice and burial options.“Part of celebrating long life includes planning for that last chapter in your life,” said Simone Mitchell-Peterson, LBFE executive director. “Our aim is to tackle topics that often go unaddressed and can affect quality of life down the road.”Examples of end-of-life issues that often get overlooked include:· Creating a family tree – In addition to making a will, family trees help alleviate potential legal disputes among family members by clarifying how people are related.· Hospice care – Hospice care is not just for the dying. Many lives are enhanced by this care, through services that help them become more active.· Support networks – Many hospices will also assist in funeral planning so the family does not have to do all of the work alone.WHEN: Sat., Oct. 4, 2008 from 10:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.WHERE: LBFE, Chicago Chapter, headquarters – 355 N. Ashland Ave, ChicagoCOST: Registration for non-LBFE members is $15; free for membersRSVP: Reservations required. Call 312/455-1000 by Sept. 25 to reserve your space.
