Just a little motivation to get you through the rest of the winter.
Message From Peter
The cold winter months discourage many of us from outdoor activities. Fortunately, it also can provide the time needed to make sure that our current affairs are in order.
Generally speaking, I recommend that all of my clients have, or consider having, three essential documents: A Will or Will substitute; a Health Care Power of Attorney; and a Financial Power of Attorney.
Most of us are familiar with a Will. However, many people are not familiar with the great variety of Will substitutes that exist.
To learn more, please call our office and schedule a time to meet. We look forward to seeing you.
Caring for an elderly parent can be stressful for families. Siblings may disagree over how to provide care or where a parent will live, and these squabbles can end up costing the family thousands of dollars.
The government is spending billions to fund assisted living services through Medicaid, but government oversight and regulation of assisted living facilities is lacking, according to a new government report.
Older parents are becoming more common, driven in part by changing cultural mores and surrogate motherhood. Steve Martin, Billy Joel, and Janet Jackson are some examples. But later-in-life parents have some special estate planning and retirement considerations.
While long-term care insurance costs are up in general, some policies are going down in price, according to the 2018 Long Term Care Insurance Price Index, an annual report from the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance.
