Planning Ahead Provides Better Protection for Your Family

Unlike a Will, lifetime planning includes thinking ahead of time, about protecting your hard-earned property not only when you die, but if you become incapacitated.
In a medical crisis your family needs to make tough decisions for you. In a financial crisis your family can be able to carry on with control of your assets, in privacy, following your wishes. But only if you share them.

But when the unpredictable happens, planning for nursing home care or qualifying for Medicaid is often too late. A good lifetime plan includes a healthcare directive: your wishes for the care you want, when you are no longer able to make those decisions. A good plan includes your directives for the control of both your medical and financial choices, so things happen the way you intend.

Good planning starts now and helps ensure your property is used to benefit your loved ones not only when you die, but for generations to come. The focus of the workshop is to lay out an outline, and the simple steps as to how to BEGIN planning and the conversation within the family. Many people come to these sessions with the biggest question: How do I even get started? This sessions to provide a starter roadmap kind of situation where questions are answered and each attendee gets both the lay of the land and information relavant to where they might be in their thinking.  Whether it is for the inevitable life end, or maybe the  unpredictable (accident or unexpected need for nursing home admission),starting to plan is key. What follows is a sample of how we’ve gotten good attendance in the past. What’s the next step?

Join attorney Robert Deschene, a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, WealthCounsel and Advisors Forum, in a comfortable setting to talk about how to start the conversation and the many benefits of planning now.
