Nuts and Bolts of Family Future Planning (webinar)

July 20, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Planning for the future can seem really overwhelming for families. In this session, presenters will break it down into manageable steps and discuss the various areas to think about when planning. This will include legal and financial planning, residential plans, communication supports, and building relationships and social support networks. In this webinar, you will hear one family’s story of planning for the future as they went through the nuts and bolts of the process. Resources for planning will be shared. This is the second of three sessions in the webinar series.
