This by-annual forum designed for accountants, financial planning and wealth management professionals, guardians and estate planning attorneys will get practical guidance on the intersection of legal and medical elements of your client's care plan. Get the latest updates on legislative and regulatory developments affecting today's elder and disabled population. You will be able to recognize liability issues, to prevent harm to your client and to yourself.

The agenda for the Florida Elder and Disability Law Forum - May 2019 will cover a variety of topics including: The Future of Senior Care; updates on Spring 2019 Florida Legislative Sessions, Medicare and Medicaid, Veterans Affairs, and closes with a panel discussion to answer your questions.
