Timely Talk – December 2019

Serving Lacey and beyond since 1998

Putting your House in Order

Memory Care at The Lodges continues our monthly Timely Talks health series with Michele Penberthy of Senior Guardianship Services presenting everything you need to know about Powers of Attorney, Guardianships, Health Care Directives and more! Join us on December 18th as Michele discusses all the issues that can arise within families when (you or) a loved one is no longer able to care for themselves. Michele will address issues surrounding the difference between Power of Attorney and Guardianship. You’ll learn the differences between financial powers of attorney, healthcare powers of attorney, health care directives and POLST forms. Learn the steps you can take to ensure your Will is followed precisely to your wishes, what is involved with probate and how long that takes. Finally, Michele will talk about your choices in arranging your own cremation or burial before your death occurs.

Michele Penberthy has been in business for 37 years with MCP & Bookkeeping Services, Inc. She started her second business, Senior Guardianship Services LLC, in 1992 when she was asked to become a guardian for a local state political figure. Michele continues to work full time, providing both professional fiduciary assistance as well as personal case management care. As a Certified Professional Guardian, Michele is well known and respected in our community!
