There are so many facets to long-term care planning that many people fail to discuss it or investigate the options. This is a mistake, though, because long term planning is one of the best ways of protecting assets and ensuring that your wishes are carried out when you are no longer able to articulate them or make them known. Many people think that long term planning is unnecessary but the reality is that the majority of people will need some form of care, whether temporary or permanent, at some point in their lives. Furthermore, long-term care planning is not solely related to medical needs or designating powers of attorney in the case of incapacity.
We are available to help walk you through the various considerations involved in long-term planning. In addition, we can help you hone in on the aspects of long term planning that are most important to you and most relevant to your situation. Some people may be primarily interested in ways to protect their assets, either for their own use, their spouse's use, or their beneficiaries. It can be complicated to understand how to maintain as much of your estate for your children as possible while also providing for your medical care and other needs as your age advances.
Another very important concern is designating a power of attorney for your financial interests and health care interests. This is another place where our assistance can be invaluable because we can help you focus on the key considerations of choosing a representative to be your power of attorney without being influenced by emotions.
