The Education Center at Van Dyck Law was developed by Fiona Van Dyck and is set to open this Spring. The vision for The Education Center includes a one-stop safe place where clients, families and financial and health professionals could begin to research the services and supports that are related to the issues surrounding aging or disability for their loved ones, their clients or even themselves.
Not only will there be informational materials, but there will be monthly presentations for our clients, the community and our health care and financial professional partners. Legal seminars, health care topics, mindfulness workshops, self-care presentations, guest speakers and lunch and learns will be on the agenda for 2019.
These presentations will help those who are aging or who are caring for a loved one to identify those services, supports, and providers who can help with the issues they are facing.
The programming offered at the Education Center seeks to raise awareness of issues affecting those who are aging as well as the professionals who care for them. Here is our 2019 schedule for our clients:
May 8th-Coping with Behavioral Changes-Guest Speaker-Mary Anne Ross from Alzheimer’s NJ
