Surviving Spouse

 

ADA’s Health and Wellness programs

At the AADA we are here for you during every phase of your life.  Coping with the death of a spouse is extremely difficult, and you have many considerations with which to deal

regarding your spouses practice, estates, and transitions in your own personal life.

We provide our members with materials and support to help make this time easier.

  • state laws
  • dental practice transition articles
  • information for getting temporary help in the office
  • a list of brokers who sell dental practices – these brokers are often aware of dentists that can temporarily help in the office
  • simple tax information
  • Great-West Estate Planner
  • a list of books that would be helpful during this time in life

Would you like to receive a free packet?  Or, if you know a surviving spouse, either recent or not so recent, who is a widow or widower of an ADA member, please pass this information along to Marilyn.

TRAVELING CAN HELP HEAL THE WIDOWED

    from Marilyn Woerner

Traveling can be a cure for some problems, but it cannot heal the pain from the loss of a spouse. However, with the support of family and friends, a widowed person can find solace in visiting new places. It is easy to stay inside and away from everyone, but that is unhealthy.

A widowed person who had traveled with their spouse may not have had to be concerned about money, luggage, or the travel itinerary. If the spouse did not want to travel, the widowed person may be unsure how to start traveling. Several agencies have Trips available for single people and will help guide a person through the process of the trip. For example:
