The University of North Carolina at Asheville’s Osher Lifelong Learning
Institute (OLLI) is offering a comprehensive five-week course called The
Gift of Time: Thoughtful Planning for Life’s End, a program that
encourages participants to think and communicate end of life wishes. Elder
Caroline Knox will be the presenting speaker on Monday, April 4, when she will offer
an extended conversation about the legal and financial issues surrounding
end of life planning.
Caroline’s legal practice focuses on a distinct, elder-focused specialty
of law that features an interdisciplinary team dedicated to maintaining
the health, safety, and quality of life of elders. With an expertise in
the legal and financial issues important to elders, Caroline and her team
are able to provide services in care coordination and family support in
addition to traditional asset-focused services that help elders qualify
for public benefits while preserving family resources. As part of these
services, Caroline routinely counsels clients so that they can be proactive
in their end of life decision making, including drawing up documents to
help ensure clients receive the end-of-life medical treatment they want.
Caroline has earned the designation of Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA)
by The National Elder Law Foundation and is widely recognized throughout
the state as an expert in elder law matters.
