11/16/2018 – Center Valley, PA — Julieanne E. Steinbacher, CELA*, of Steinbacher, Goodall & Yurchak served as keynote speaker at the 2018 Pennsylvania Gerontology Conference, hosted by St. Luke’s University Health Network. She addressed the attendees on family caregiver agreements, essential estate planning documents, long-term care and special needs planning, retirement planning, and available community resources. Julie stressed the importance of keeping everyone in your inner circle informed by clearly communicating your wishes to loved ones, financial personnel, and medical staff.
“It takes a village to ensure your second half of life is the most rewarding for you and your family,” said Julieanne E. Steinbacher, CELA*. “A village consisting of family members, doctors, nurses, elder law attorneys, financial planners, and insurance agents all need to be on the same page when it comes to your care and doing what is in your best interest. A piece of advice that I always give to my clients is to communicate, communicate, communicate! Communication is the glue that holds your wishes intact and ensures they are followed.”
The theme of this year’s conference was “Conversations for the Second Half of Life.” Doctors, lawyers, social workers, nurses, therapists, and dietitians all came together to share innovative ideas and to lay formidable foundations on best care options for an aging baby boomer population. Attendees had the opportunity to request a copy of the book, Protect Your Family! What You Really Need to Know for the Second Half of Life. Attorney Steinbacher co-authored the book with other leading elder law attorneys from across the country. This indispensable resource offers readers the essential tools and knowledge for effective long-term care planning.
