ESTATE AND TRUST PLANNING

04/13/2015
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Fremont Main Library – Fukaya Meeting Room
Fremont  CA

Meet James J. Phillips, Probate and Estate Planning Attorney serving Alameda County, who will speak on estate planning, trusts, probate, and related tax matters. James Phillips is a Certified Specialist in estate planning, probate, and trust law with over 30 years of experience; with a Juris Doctor from Hastings College and a “highest rating (legal ability and ethical standards) of professional excellence” by Martindale-Hubbell. He is included annually in the Northern California Super Lawyers since its inception. His web page is www.jamesjphillips.com.

Estate planning is a process! If your estate is small, you may simply focus on who will receive your assets after your death, and who should manage your estate, pay your last debts and handle the distribution of your assets; and who will manage your medical and financial affairs if you become ill. If your estate is large, there are various ways of preserving your assets for your beneficiaries and reducing or postponing the amount of estate tax.

This free seminar is sponsored by the Alameda County Library and the Fremont Chamber of Commerce. No reservations are required.

National Healthcare Decisions Day

04/16/2015
11:00 am - 2:00 pm
聖法蘭西紀念醫院 低層的B和C室舉行 St Francis Memorial Hospital Lower level, Rooms B & C
San Francisco 

Non-profit Pathways Home Health & Hospice, in partnership with Dignity Health Saint Francis Memorial Hospital, will present in Cantonese the importance of advance directive healthcare planning with an educational event at Saint Francis on, Thursday, April 16. This is part of a coordinated wave of events across the country for National Healthcare Decisions Day. Pathways is providing free information and tools for the community to talk about their wishes with family, friends and healthcare providers–and to complete a written Advance Directive in accordance with California state laws. (This means naming a healthcare power of attorney and completing a living will.)

The free presentation, which includes lunch, will be held from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. in Lower Level Rooms B and C of the hospital at 900 Hyde Street, San Francisco. Reserve a seat by calling Toby Cheung at 650-826-7143. For more information, visit the Resources page at nationalhealthcaredecisionsday.org.

“As a result of National Healthcare Decisions Day, many more people in our community will have meaningful conversations with family members about their healthcare wishes and will complete advance directives to make their wishes known,” said Pathways CEO Barbara Burgess. “Fewer families and healthcare providers will have to struggle with difficult healthcare decisions because they don’t have guidance from the patient. And with an advance directive doctors, nurses, and hospitals will be better prepared to honor patient wishes.”
