"... in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes" (Benjamin Franklin).  Therefore, every adult over 18 years of age, and certainly every family with minor children, needs basic estate planning - a Will, a Power of Attorney for Finances, a Power of Attorney for Health Care (a Living Will), and possibly a Trust.


In addition to basic estate planning, Elders and Retirees also need to start thinking about, and start planning for, the possibility of disability, incapacity, or incompetency caused by illness, accident, or aging which will require long-term care.  


Ask yourself: Who will speak for you when you cannot speak for yourself?  Who will act for you and manage your affairs when you cannot manage your own affairs?  Who will care for you when you are no longer able to care for yourself?  And finally, how will you pay for long-term care if that becomes necessary?  Call me to discuss these and other important issues.
