Becoming a caregiver to your aging parents or family members can be a lot more than just ensuring they have their legal and financial matters in order. A paramount part of dealing with this life change is ensuring, before it becomes too late, that there is an Estate Plan in place. Estate Plans can be comprised of many documents, most commonly Last Wills & Testaments, Living Wills, Powers of Attorney, and a variety of different trusts. It is imperative to get these documents done before the elder becomes ill or mentally incapacitated, so that their wishes regarding their assets and legacy can be adhered to.
But in addition to taking on additional responsibility when seeing an elder attorney, or even planning long term healthcare, many changes are likely to happen. Certain conditions, illnesses or diseases are more prevalent in the elder community, Alzheimer’s being a notorious one.
