Family reunions, barbeque’s, baseball games, beach, fun and sun: you know it’s summer! Some of my fondest memories growing up were sharing time with friends and family. Family, I believe, is the glue that hold people together. One of the driving forces for me to become an estate planning attorney was to keep families and their hard earned life savings intact.
Before becoming an elder law attorney, I was a certified financial planner. I saw several families lose everything to the cost of nursing home care. I saw first hand the devastation this had and the hopelessness it created. It doesn’t have to be this way. All you need to do is a little strategic planning ahead of time with a qualified elder law attorney. They are experts in this field.
So, this summer when you’re having that backyard cookout and enjoying a delicious cocktail, think about what’s really important to you. If it’s family, then make sure you have your estate planning documents in place!

Attend an “Estate Planning Essentials” Workshop
What are some of the great lessons your Dad taught you? I’m not talking about throwing a ball or teaching you to drive, though those were important things to learn. How about responsibility, being a good citizen, helping others, giving back to your community, and being a good role model? There are so many intangibles that have influenced your life. This month we celebrate Father’s Day. What a great day to appreciate your Dad and reflect on the sacrifices that were made to get you to where you are today!
Dad and Mom worked hard to “put food on the table and clothes on your back”. Along the way, they accumulated some assets, a house; savings, life insurance, cars, etc. Do you know if they are protected should they need long term care? With nursing home costs at $10,000 or more a month, it might not take too long to deplete what they’ve spent a lifetime acquiring. There are ways to ensure this doesn’t happen. Give Dad (and Mom) the gift of a free estate planning workshop. It’s another way you can say thanks for all they’ve done for you. Upcoming workshops:
Wednesday, June 20th from 10:00am-12:00pm at the Quincy Council on Aging-Kennedy Center, 440 East Squantum Street, Quincy
Monday, June 25th from 1:00pm-3:00pm at the Kingston Council on Aging, 30 Evergreen Street, Kingston
