A Consumer’s Guide to Hospice Planning
Planning for someone who has a life-threatening illness can be complicated. You may be torn by the emotional component…thinking that if you put your wishes down in the form of a last will and testament or a trust, you are somehow surrendering your fight and giving in to the disease.
Actually, my experience as an attorney who helps families with this type of planning is that the opposite occurs. I find that my clients experience a great peace of mind once they have done their planning so that they can concentrate on the other issues they are facing.
When a life-threatening illness strikes, it’s the responsibility of the spouse or family leader to become fully informed – to get smart – about these things. I have personally reviewed dozens of books, plus the literature commonly given to families who have someone on Hospice, and I’ve given and attended the public workshops and lectures. And I’ve found that these leave out most of the critical financial and legal information you need to know.
That’s why I wrote this booklet entitled A Consumer’s Guide to Hospice Planning. And that’s why I’ve been on a legal crusade of sorts, to make sure that families who have a loved one facing a terminal illness become smart about these things. Please contact our office to obtain your FREE copy.
The time to act is now. With proper planning, you will insure that things are handled according to your wishes and that you’ve taken the best steps possible to protect your loved ones and to protect your family’s financial security.
