Seniors and their families face unique issues and complicated laws and regulations. The fear of losing control and running out of money can turn retirement into a time of anxiety and worry. I strive to help my aging clients maintain control and dignity as they grow older.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that 70% of people over the age of 65 will need some type of long-term care. One in three seniors will develop some type of dementia. This means that estate planning is not just about planning for death or a short-term period of incapacity. Seniors must consider issues such as asset protection, long-term care, taxes, special needs planning, and planning for a substitute decision-maker during periods of incapacity. Unfortunately, many seniors’ estate plans are not tailored for their actual needs. There are a number of tools that we can use to protect you and your family.
