Advance Directives are a Must
No one wants to think about being incapacitated before they die. Most of us hope that we’ll never have to be a financial, emotional or physical burden to our loved ones, but the reality is that many people live longer than anticipated and may end up being a monetary and emotional weight on our children or spouses.
Fortunately, there are many elder law attorneys who can help you prepare various documents, including advance directives and living wills, that address these issues. Avoiding making end of life plans is a mistake that can have a profound effect on our own lives as well as the lives of our descendants.
An elder law attorney can also suggest valuable resources for finding out more about medical, financial and emotional guidance and support from government agencies, local hospitals and health care providers and financial institutions.Tags: advance directives, elder law, elder law attorney, living wills
