"... [In] this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes" (Benjamin Franklin). Therefore, every adult over 18 years of age 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. Those with minor or disabled children, or children from a previous marriage need more advanced planning.
In addition to basic estate planning, Seniors also need to plan for the risk of a disability caused by a chronic condition or illness, accident, stroke, or simply age-related degeneration, which might require long-term care - at home, in assisted living, or in a skilled nursing home.
Ask Yourself: Who will speak for you when you cannot speak for yourself? Who will act for you when you can no longer manage your own finances? 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 for an appointment to discuss these and other important issues.
