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!
