Helping with Estate Planning for Senior Citizens
As people who have been involved with estate planning for elderly parents and setting up trust for elderly parents, we often come across a question from many of our clients. Do we need estate planning? This innocent question isn’t unfounded though as the first mention of the word ‘estate’ immediately sounds people with large country houses and millions of dollars in their savings. This is one of the reasons most elderly in America didn’t give much thought to estate planning in the past. This meant that they left behind more questions for their loved ones than assets and wealth. The fact remains senior estate planning is for everyone and not a function of the wealth or property you can accumulated during your life. Our organizer kit shall help you in putting all your elder care estate planning in the right order and depart from the world knowing you have fulfilled all your roles and responsibilities in the best possible way.
