This FREE presentation is part of the newly reformatted Benevilla “Educational Workshop Series.”  The new workshops will be held twice a month on Wednesdays. Benevilla understands how valuable your time is. So, they restructured their workshops to get you the critical information you need in a framework that’s quick and to the point. Each workshop is only 30 minutes long and ends with an in-depth question and answer period. Each presentation is hosted by carefully selected local professionals who can answer your questions and provide guidance and resources you may need to prepare for senior life changes.

Topics were chosen for their relevance in meeting the challenges of the aging. Presentations will be a “Bullet Point” format and will cover key topics including:

• Top 10 Resources for Living Independently

• Top 5 Reasons a Fiduciary is Important

• 10 Hidden Costs of Senior Living Communities.

• 7 Senior Housing Options – Which Is Best for You?

• Top 5 Cost Savings with Home Care

• 10 Priorities in Estate Planning

The workshops will be held live in the Bovard room in the offices of the Benevilla main campus located at 16752 N. Greasewood Street, Surprise, 85378. You can choose to participate in-person. If you have access to a computer, and you rather participate from home, you can also join these workshops live online.  Benevilla will use the safe, easy to use and intuitive Zoom audio/video conference platform to host these presentations.
