If you, or a loved one, suddenly became too sick to live, would you, or your family, know where to begin planning for a funeral? How about the legal obligations of a will or financial debts?
The UNO Department of Gerontology invites members of the community to join Tom Belford of John A. Gentleman Mortuaries for an informational seminar and discussion about the potential scheduling and financial challenges involved with planning a funeral or memorial service for a loved one.
“Most people are frightened about discussing death, but I’m more concerned about them not discussing it,” says Julie Masters, chair of the UNO Department of Gerontology. “There are too many important decisions to be made after one loses their life to not start that discussion early.”
Presented by the Aging and the Life Span Teaching Circle, "Begin with the End in Mind" is a three part series that provides a safe environment for people to discuss things that are typically avoided in normal conversation.
With funerals and burial plans being by far the most expensive part of the end-of-life process, Tom Belford will help guide attendees through how to make a painful emotional time less painful financially.
Due to space limitations, an R.S.V.P. is required to attend each event. Contact Sara Young at 402.554.2272 to make any arrangements.
