Speaker Series Update March 22, 22

March 22, 2022 – Douglas Rankin, Lawyer – Rotarians and guests quickly became aware during this weekly Rotary Meeting that dealing with health care for elders requires a lawyer. They found a knowledgeable lawyer in Doug Rankin. His vast knowledge and determination to get every entailment the elders are due in the older age was amazing. Doug’s briefing ranged from how to get the elders in the best health center possible, how to make sure the hard-earned money saved during their lifetime of working is not taken away, and equally important how to look out for the health care centers that are not looking out for the welfare of the elders. Doug’s office offers reduced, and some cases free services and he was fair enough to share other law offices which offered free benefits that his law office presently does not offer. Doug Rankin handed out a ton of information and even took time after his presentation to answer all questions before leaving.
