Several months ago Cynthia Griffin, of Burnett Casey Griffin, PLLC in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, was approached by the marketing director of a local assisted living facility to see if her firm would be interested in working with a small group of professionals to create educational seminars for the public. The seminars would be focused on the aging and the senior population.
The Senior Life Alliance was formed with several professionals in the elder care community. It includes someone from an assisted living facility, a financial advisor, a real estate broker, and Griffin (an attorney). During the meetings, the panel will focus on one topic but each approach it from different professional perspectives. The first alliance session is taking place tomorrow, November 2, and is about downsizing. The panel of elder care professionals will discuss the options available to seniors, as well as the changes that come with downsizing—emotional, legal, and financial.
While this is a great tool for marketing, the primary focus is educational. All of the professionals in this group have a heart for the senior community and want to help people understand their rights and their options.

Good luck tomorrow, Cynthia! We hope the event is a huge success!
