Attorney Brendan Daly, Czepiga Daly Pope & Perri
Connecticut has the 2nd-highest cost of long-term care in the nation. So unless you're planning to leave the state, you need to protect yourself and your retirement assets from long-term care costs. Attorney Daly will cover Medicaid and its complex rules. You'll learn how Medicaid can be used to pay for home care. You'll also learn spend down strategies that can help you qualify for Medicaid AND make your home more suitable for aging in place. If you know the rules and plan ahead, you can still protect your hard-earned assets and age at home as long as you're able to.

Preparing Your Home for Aging in Place
Barbara Vujs, RN, Joanna Miller, PT, and Marlo Matassa, Berlin VNA

In order to age in place, your home needs to be accessible and safe. Did you know that falls are the number 1 cause of injuries in seniors? They cause hip fractures, cuts, bruises, and head injuries. Slippery floors, electrical cords, and area rugs may seem harmless, but they can be the culprits. You can make your home safe with very basic changes. Proper lighting, assistive technology, the right shoes, and cleaning up clutter are just some of the things that they will discuss.
