On Nov. 20, at 9:30 a.m., St. Mary’s Gardens Seniors Speakers Series will explore family law for seniors. “Many seniors do not understand family law,” said Micheline Boutin, Administrator at St. Mary’s Gardens. “This session will explain how family law can affect seniors.”

Lawyers Ken Alexander and Sarah Stewart will discuss a family law perspective on obligations of married and unmarried couples on separation, divorce and death. They will speak about the importance of a proper last will and testament and powers of attorney.

Finally, they will talk about the considerations of entering into a new relationship after a separation or divorce, or after the death of a spouse.

Seniors, family members, and caregivers are invited to attend. Admission is free. Snacks and refreshments will be provided. Seating is limited.

People wishing to attend can RSVP to Dawna Carrier, St. Mary’s Gardens Community Relations Coordinator, at or (705) 267-5000, ext. 8006.

St. Mary’s Gardens is located on Pine Street North across from the 101 Mall.

St. Mary’s Gardens speakers’ series features different speakers every three to four weeks, covering a variety of topics from finance and estate planning to fraud prevention and health.
