There will be two presentations:

First half:  Denyse Leblanc & Matthew Cocklin Pre Planning Specialists  Burlington Memorial Gardens

Topic: “Taking care of matters today gives peace of mind for tomorrow”

Join an informal, friendly seminar given by Burlington Memorial Garden’s Pre Need Specialists Denyse LeBlanc & Matthew Cocklin.

REPLACE ANXIETY and UNCERTAINTY ON A TOPIC THAT MANY OF US AVOID, WITH PEACE OF MIND and CONTROL.  Get the facts and clarify the myths. Many people are unaware of the 87 decisions that must be considered when a loved one passes. Someday everyone will have to face the problem of making final arrangements.  It’s easier, kinder and more economical to do it today…..together.

Second half:  Joan Ulrich, a Certified Transition Specialist with TLC Moving Solutions

Topic: Spring cleaning with a twist….Learn some tips and tricks to de-clutter your space and reduce your stress. Remember you don’t need to be moving to move out stuff !

TLC Moving Solutions is owned and operated by Joan Ulrich, a Certified Transition Specialist with a Certificate in Senior Move Management.

While working in an Assisted Living Resident, Joan discovered her niche and a talent for making seniors feel at home as they transition into a senior living environment.   She also discovered many seniors were too overwhelmed to make the move on their own.  After hearing many times, “Joan, how can I move? I have 40-years-worth of stuff!” she knew she wanted to help. 

Joan found her passion and has since completed many successful transitions over the years. Sentiments Joan has often heard: “I should have moved years ago.” “You made it so easy.”  and a favourite, “Thank you! For making this move possible.” For Joan and her team, moving seniors with TLC is very rewarding.

Our  Milton meeting will be held on Wednesday May 13, 2015 at the Seniors Activity Centre, 500 Childs Drive, Milton
