Mayor Amaroso invites the public to attend “Powers of Attorney, Living Wills,
Advance Directives, and Other Mysterious Things: Taking Control of your Future” with guest speaker
Professor Robert Solomon on October 7 at 3 p.m. at the Bush Plane Heritage Centre – Ranger
Theatre.

This event is designed to support Sault Ste. Marie as Age-Friendly. The designation requires a
community to provide seniors and their caregivers with knowledge on senior abuse – including
financial abuse.

There is no cost to attend this event; parking is free at the Bush Plane Heritage Centre.

Mayor Debbie Amaroso explains the value of the event saying, “We are pleased to have Professor
Robert Solomon join us in Sault Ste. Marie to share valuable information on seniors’ rights protection
and financial preparedness. As the citizens of our community age, it is important that they receive
insight into how they can protect their life-long investments and what options they have to do so.”
Professor Solomon is currently on the Faculty of Law at the University of Western Ontario and has
been involved in research and teaching on health care, civil liability and criminal law for almost 40
years. He has served as a consultant to Health and Welfare Canada, the Law Reform Commission of
Canada, the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse, and the Commonwealth of Australia Health
Department.

This event is federally funded by the New Horizons for Seniors Program. For more information visit: http://www.esdc.gc.ca/eng/seniors/funding/index.shtml.
Please join Professor Solomon and the Age-Friendly Sault Ste. Marie team to learn about safe guarding seniors and preparing for the future.
