FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — Sometimes, people are caught off guard by life’s unexpected turns and a lack of planning.

Forsyth County Senior Services is offering several workshops focused on informing people on how they can develop better plans for the future.

The free sessions take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1 and Tuesday, Oct. 8 at the Sexton Hall Enrichment Center, 2115 Chloe Road.

The discussions will be on legal concerns, final life arrangements, hospice care and estate recovery.

Brian Blasick, wellness senior specialist at Sexton Hall, said it’s important to make sure nothing catches you off guard and to understand about your long-term care planning.

“There are a good number of seniors who are in their 50s and 60s, but they might be taking care of their kids or parents and might not think of themselves,” Blasick said. “It’s important to think of themselves so that they are prepared as they get older and have the security of some of these things, events and plans in place.”

The workshops will feature speakers from Georgia Legal Services, McDonald and Son Funeral Home, Hospice of Northeast Georgia Medical Center and Legacy Link Area Agency on Aging.

Lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
