Did You Know: Almost Half of the People Over the Age of 65 Will Become Incapacitated Before They Die
Legally Protecting Your Family’s Finances Must Be a High Priority.
Planning is Crucial to Ensuring Your Family’s Assets Are Less At Risk
None of us can predict the future. One day we are generally healthy, while the next we may fall victim to a stroke, accidental injury, or disease that leaves us physically or mentally incapacitated. While not a pleasant topic to discuss, nonetheless it is something we must be addressed. Unfortunately, most traditional, lawyer-prepared estate planning documents do not address situations where you are physically alive, yet physically or mentally unable to make or execute those decisions. Alzheimer’s and Dementia are two of the most common diseases that disable older and middle-aged individuals in New Jersey.
Living Long and Staying Healthy is the Exception, Not the Rule
Everyone hopes to live a long and healthy life, free of catastrophic disease. Unfortunately, there is over a 50% chance that you or someone in your family will be affected by some sort of incapacity. While dreadful, it is without doubt less painful than the prospect of you and your family members being forced to surrender all your/their hard-earned assets to long-term care, simply because you did not plan.
If someone you love becomes incapacitated, it is important to have proper Elder Care documents in place. If not, you will face the likely prospect of having to hire an attorney to apply to the court to protect the family’s income and/or resources and determine who will be named his or her legal guardian or conservator. The court appoints the person who will make decisions for your loved one, something no family wants.
Again, planning is key. For more information about Elder Care planning, please see our FREE Elder Care Resources listed below, or email Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. at firstname.lastname@example.org and request that we send you a free copy.
