RJ Connelly III Speech Topics
Estate Planning for the 21st Century
Estate planning is a critical process to protect assets and those you love during your life and after your death. Assets must be disposed of after passing and you may be surprised by what things count as assets, including intellectual property. Learn why this planning can streamline asset distribution and help survivors with the difficult transition after your death. Today's estate planning is no longer your "parents" estate plan.
Elder Abuse and Exploitation - Looking for Solutions
Today, our seniors are more visible, more active and more independent than ever before. They are living longer and in better health. But as the elder population of America grows, so does the hidden problem of elder abuse, neglect and exploitation. Attorney Connelly discusses the numbers, who the abusers are, some of his most difficult cases and some possible solutions to the problem.
Medicaid Planning - Coming of Age in the 21st Century
Long-term care public policy issues continue to be a major concern in the 21st Century as our country ages. The demand for long term care is skyrocketing and by 2040, the older adult population will double. Attorney Connelly discusses Medicaid planning for the future and the emerging trends that may make planning more difficult. He will discuss options and why early planning is essential.
Elder Law and Dementia Planning
The best way to manage dementia at a country level is by developing national plans, comparable to nationwide management of HIV/AIDS or diabetes. How will this affect elder law and long term care planning? What plans should be put in place at the family level when such a diagnosis is received for a loved one. Attorney Connelly discusses the importance of wrap around planning and his "Safe Harbor" planning.
Fiduciary Services and Aging in Place
Aging in Place is the trend for today's seniors. It certainly saves the costs of nursing care or assisted living, but there are other considerations that must be addressed. Needs like personal care, household chores, meals, money management, and healthcare require planning. Attorney Connelly discusses how to organize these services and how to choose the correct providers.
