It’s very easy to find other things to focus on in today’s modern life. Furthermore, it’s harder to fit elder law estate planning into your overall schedule because it feels too far off into the future, too complicated or even too final.
Regardless of whatever objection you have about the prospect of doing your elder law estate planning, this could lead to unexpected and challenging results that will affect you and your loved ones.
One common pitfall of avoiding elder law planning is that your life savings might end up going towards nursing home costs, if you or your spouse have a sudden need for intensive nursing home care. Another challenge associated with failure to complete your elder law planning is seeing your assets go to people you didn’t intend to have them when you pass away.
It can be a very personal and relatable goal to accomplish your elder law estate planning. In fact, this entire process begins by creating documents that help you to take control of your assets and your lives. These assets must be planned for both in terms of potential disability or death.
This reduces relationship destruction and any pain associated with your loved ones trying to handle the prospect of closing out your final affairs or making difficult decisions if something happens to you.
