As North Carolina's population ages, more people and their families confront a confusing array of long-term care choices and payment sources with little or no preparation. Speakers for this program will give an overview of options, provide resources to better prepare for decisions, and offer their thoughts on emerging concerns.  Speakers are: Bill Lamb, president of the Board of Directors of FOR (Friend of Residents in Long Term Care), a statewide advocacy group committed to improving the quality of life for residents living in long term care settings; and Don Streb, Chairman of Henderson County's Community Advisory Committee, the local branch of the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program, which regularly visits Adult Care Homes, Nursing Homes, and Family Care Facilities.
