Future Planning in Wisconsin: It’s Possible and Necessary
More than 500,000 people in Wisconsin identify as a family caregiver for a loved one. It can be a hard job—and thinking about your family member’s future after you are gone can be so daunting for parents of loved ones with disabilities that it can feel impossible to broach. The result? Families are delaying this conversation as long as possible and sometimes even until a crisis situation forces them to make decisions about it.

The Arc Wisconsin and The Arc’s national office have partnered to offer a free 2-part webinar series targeted at rural families with loved ones with disabilities in Wisconsin. The webinar series offer free resources from The Arc’s national office on evidence-based future planning resources and guidance, along with a Wisconsin special needs planning attorney to help these families with some initial steps and tools.

Register on Zoom for this important webinar series. Topics include:

Part 1: Tuesday, August 17 from 10:00 – 11:15 am CST
An overview on future planning including The Arc’s free resources.
Liz Mahar, a national expert in future planning (and a sibling caregiver herself) will present.
