Elder Care Legal Planning

I received an article about elder care legal planning in my email a couple of days ago, and I thought it had some good points to consider. I wanted to share it here with you.

One of the things we've bumped into is keeping Mama's affairs separate, but making sure I can handle them if Mama becomes unable to. For instance, if you have a parent who owns a house in their name, what do you do if they become ill enough so that they can't manage the property anymore? We're making sure we've dotted all our i's and crossed all our t's (hopefully) and will be calling on a local attorney to help Mama get things set up. It's nothing anyone really wants to think about or spend time or money doing, but since Mama's almost 84, we'd be wise to plan ahead.

Hope this helps you, too. Feel free to share your thoughts and experiences in this area. We can all benefit from knowing what might lie ahead.

Blessings!
