How do I stay in Control

  1. Power of Attorney: Financial &  Legal.
  2. Trust/Will – written instructions about your estate and sometimes burial details.
  3. Health Care Proxy – health care decisions.
  4. Living Will/ Advanced Directive – written instructions for catastrophic or end of life decision-making.

Control over your own life

  • Do I want to be saved by machines? Do I want to live through machines? What is the difference?
  • Do I want to remain in my home or be placed in a nursing home or live with a specific relative or friend? 
  • At times, there are choices to be made and family members often disagree. Treatments have consequences. The choice to prolong a loved one's life vs. ending it is an enormous decision. The only comfort at that times would be to know that is was the wishes of the person themselves, and that they would make the same decision if they could.


 



If you are like most people, you know that you need a Revocable Trust to protect your house, avoid probate, & reduce taxes. You might have thought about it for years. You may have parents that need it.  You might have started researching it and got tired or overwhelmed……let us help!
