Is All Your Paperwork Done Before You Leave This World?

The Rensselaer County Senior Center will be hosting a number of informational sessions on Power of Attorney, Health Care Proxy, Wills, Trusts and so much more. 

Just an over the counter drug can affect you in a negative way and put into question your cognitive ability. Our esteemed Director in Schodack Barb Fausner had a terrible experience with Benadryl “She took a trip and never left the farm”. She’d be willing to share her experience with you. 

Don’t let someone else decide your last years of life. Take care of your business while there is no question of your ability. The court could appoint someone you never would have chosen to care for you and you would have no choice. Make life decisions easy. Take care of business. Bring a Friend This is Important
