On June 6, 2019, Takacs McGinnis Elder Care Law hosted the 20th annual Time Out Workshop, a professional educational event for social workers, case managers, discharge planners, and others who serve the long-term care community throughout Middle Tennessee. The event showcased 25 professional exhibitors and five presenters who spoke on a variety of topics to a sold out crowd of 200.
This year’s event was held at The Inn at Opryland, a change from the past several years. The new venue offered better access for participants with disabilities and more space for exhibitors.
According to organizer Dana Hentschel, Outreach Coordinator at Takacs McGinnis Elder Care Law, PLLC, the Time Out Workshop is a local favorite. “We always sell out at least three weeks in advance,” Hentschel said. “Hosting the event is Takacs McGinnis’ way of demonstrating our gratitude to the dedicated professionals who serve older adults and people with disabilities.”
Presenters and topics included: America’s Opioids Crisis: Ethical and Legal Implications for Providers by Bruce D. White, DO, JD; Understanding Neuropsychological Evaluations: Who Needs Them and Why? by Dr. Jessy Barclay, ABPP-CN; The New Elder Law: What is Life Care Planning? by Tim Takacs, CELA; and Keeping Your Passion Burning without Burning Out by Ginger Jones.
The program also featured a panel addressing Who Do You Call When a Client is being Financially Exploited or Physically Abused? Panelists included Michael Driver, Director, Financial Services Investigations Unit, State of Tennessee; Kelly Crecelius, Relationship Manager, First Tennessee Bank; Renee Bouchillon, Director, Adult Protective Services; and Brittani Flatt, Assistant District Attorney, Davidson County.
