Kelila’s husband, Rob, with the Santa hat and their dog, Augie, with the reindeer antlers are part of Love On A Leash,® a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing volunteer pet therapy teams in meaningful and productive animal-assisted therapy. These owners and their doggies are committed to bringing comfort, happiness, and healing to people by increasing public awareness of pet therapy. Each month they visit assisted living communities and senior centers to share the love with the residents and staff.
Presenters Martin Yarnell, Estate Planning Attorney and Kelila Heller from Assisted Living Connections discuss:
Is your estate plan up to date?
Do you have a current Power of Attorney?
What choices do your parent(s) have for assisted living and senior care.
What are the costs?
Should I have control over my parent’s decisions now?
Will government programs cover anything at all?
Watching our parents age is emotional. And often it’s difficult to address their financial, estate planning, and living situations. Marty and Kelila have experienced this process personally and have spent their careers helping others navigate challenging decisions. Collectively, they help “children” become legally and financially prepared for the unexpected as well as the inevitable so that they can focus on emotional support without the stress of decision making during a crisis.

Five years ago, when Mabel was 92 and living independently in her home, she fell and broke her hip. Her children knew it was time for a change. She could no longer live alone.
A friend recommended Assisted Living Connections. After touring several large places with Jan Bearss, the family chose a large Assisted Living Community that provided Mabel with the amenities — and care — she was looking for.
