Hosts Janet Colliton and Phil McFadden
50 PLUS – PLANNING AHEAD is a lighthearted look at issues affecting seniors, the baby boom generation, and their families including finances, care, the law and all of the many decisions that the Over 50 Generation faces every day.
The banter between Phil, who is co-owner of a successful non-medical at-home care services company and Janet, who is a well known elder law attorney with a life care planning practice and a columnist at West Chester’s Daily Local News enlivens the too-often serious topic of what do we do when we get older and how do we assist our parents with greater needs.
Guests will help as we venture into unexplored territory. The show invites call-ins.
