Planning AHEAD

Along with a state team of Extension Educators and UW-Madison specialists, Jane co-developed the interactive Planning AHEAD (Advance directives, Home finances, Estate planning, and Arriving at decisions for the end of this life) program over the past year. The seven-part virtual series will be offered free to county residents through a Baldwin grant.

Planning AHEAD was created to address most aspects of end-of-life planning. The seven modules examine health care wishes, financial responsibilities, estate planning, legal requirements and documentation, distribution of personal property, end-of-life decisions, and understanding grief and the emotional ramifications. The program is designed for personal planning or for others. Handouts in the planning packet will guide participants through a manageable step-by-step action to encourage and support planning.

Jane will co-facilitate the series locally with the Human Development & Relationships Educator from Washington County.

Virtual classes will be held May 13-June 24, 2021, 10:30-11:30 am on Thursdays. This is a Sheboygan/Washington County pilot series (one of four in the state) that will be evaluated in several different ways.
