A 1-Day Educational Event to Strengthen Elder Care Service Solutions for Local Seniors in Contra Costa County

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. /California Newswire/ — As the number of aging American 65 and older continues to rise, so does the need to support our elder community care systems to protect quality of life for as long as possible. Taking leadership in addressing these issues is estate planning firm Absolute Trust Counsel and the launch of its Elder Advocacy & Law Boot Camp this fall.

Bay Area Elder Care Boot Camp
“Our goal is to build Contra Costa’s most important annual gathering of long-term care givers, geriatric care managers, case managers, assisted living administrators and nursing home administrators to learn about effective tools and resources for urgent matters facing our elders,” says Kirsten Howe, founder of Absolute Trust Counsel and the event.

According to the Population Reference Bureau in 2016, the number of Americans 65 and older was projected to rise from 46 million to over 98 million by 2060.

Here in our home state, the Public Policy Institute of California reports that the over 65 population will grow by four million people by 2030.

The event is set to take place on Wednesday, September 18, 2019, from 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. at the Contra Costa Country Club in Pleasant Hill, California. Attendees are also eligible to receive up to five hours of continuing education credits.

“The demographics of the aging population is changing,” Howe adds. “More seniors will be single. More seniors will be childless. This all has a direct effect on elder support services. Now is the time for leadership in addressing these issues.”

Sponsors of the event include Home Care Assistance, Byron Park Senior Living, Guided HealthCARE, and Sunrise Senior Living.

Tickets for this event are available for purchase at Those who register before August 31 can take advantage of early bird ticket prices. Individual tickets are $39 and a group special, buy four get the fifth free, is $156.
