Preparing for End-of-Life Issues Seminar Series

We all know that at some point we must begin planning for the end of our lives.  Making plans for your estate and end-of-life decisions allows you to take control of your affairs, protect your loved ones, and feel a sense of security in an uncertain world. 

The Richland County Homemakers Education Association, in conjunction with University of Illinois Extension are offering a 4-seminar series where we hope to make some of these seemingly burdensome tasks simple, comprehensive, and accessible.  These sessions will be held the first four Mondays in October (October 3, 10, 17 and 24) at the Olney Public Library, and are free to attend.

During the seminar series we will hear from local professionals who will provide information and advice in the following areas:

  •         Hospice/Advanced Directives
  •         Funeral Preparation
  •         Investment and Financial Planning
  •         Identity protections and vehicle titling
  •         Legal documents and obligations
  •         Insurance
  •         Banking
