The C.R.O.AK. Workshop will highlight the essential advance planning steps that one can take now to make life easier down the road for loved ones. Areas covered include Advanced Health Care Planning, Social Media & Technology, Funeral & Burial Plans, Legacy—What You Leave Behind and a checklist of Essential Documents.
