Our speaker, Marc Séguin, is the author of “Advocacy in Aging”, which focuses on wealth management and health care planning for the end-of-life years. The author was inspired by real-life stories.

We’re all living longer, which increases the likelihood of living with reduced abilities, due to natural aging, events or illness. By planning for the unexpected and building a support team, it is possible to ensure continuity and consistency in the management of financial, physical and mental affairs.

The concepts described in Advocacy in Aging apply to all those planning for their own or a relative’s aging, whatever their financial means or context. There’s no denying that we’re all living longer, and that many of us will see our abilities diminish.

Author Marc Séguin defines five pillars of planning that bring together fundamental concepts: financial planning, powers of attorney, downsizing, living wills and gradual transitions.

How do we plan for the future?
How can we facilitate transitions?
How do you ensure that the people who represent you respect your wishes, your values and your wisdom?

The discussion will be followed by questions and comments.
