Senior Concerns Seminar focuses on caregiver economics

FALLBROOK – Foundation for Senior Care will co-host an education seminar with one of California's leading elder law attorneys, Richard Scott Stewart, Esq. of California Estate and Elder Law. The no-cost seminar entitled, "Caregiver Economics" will be held Monday, June 10, from noon until 1:30 p.m. at the Christ the King Lutheran Church, 1620 S. Stage Coach Lane, in Fallbrook.

While there is no charge for the session, registration is required since space is limited, and lunch will be provided. To register, call (760) 723-7570 or visit

"Families confronting the costs of impending long-term care for a loved one often believe that it is too late to plan and that they must bear these costs on their own," Stewart said. "Though this may have been true 10 or 20 years ago, that is not the law now. There are legal tools available to protect your assets. It's never too late to plan. And since accidents and illnesses can strike younger family members, it is also never too early."

This seminar is the second of four sessions co-hosted by The Foundation for Senior Care and The California Estate and Elder Law LLP office. It is offered to the community to help in understanding their family's planning options.

"The attorneys at the California Estate and Elder Law office have provided advice to our care advocates on behalf of our clients for years," Darlene Weber, care advocate and Door-Through-Door coordinator with The Foundation for Senior Care, said. "We are grateful to them for taking the time to provide these educational sessions and encourage residents to take advantage of this opportunity to learn about their options directly from the foremost elder-law experts."

Stewart is the incoming co-chair of the San Diego County Bar Association Elder Law section. He conducts educational seminars for financial advisers and other professionals involved in elder law issues. He has concentrated his practice on solving the legal problems affecting California seniors, including MediCal benefit law, estate planning and asset protection and retention. He has also written and co-written numerous books and articles on asset protection and estate planning strategies. The California Estate and Elder Law firm was named "Best Estate Planners in San Diego" in 2017 by Seattle research firm, "Expertise."

"I enjoy practicing in this area of law because it gives me an opportunity to help a segment of our population escape from the financial ruin that can result from a stay in a nursing home," Stewart said. "Helping a family in need, when all seems lost, affords me personal rewards that no other area of law can offer."

The California Estate and Elder Law offers full spectrum planning – from estate planning to elder care planning, to estate settlement – helping families preserve both their assets and their relationships. Find out more at

Other elder law planning sessions will be offered Aug. 13 and Nov. 12. Those seminars will focus on essential documents and surviving spouse issues. To learn more about the topics and dates of the seminars, visit and click on the "Events" bar.
