Free Retirement Planning Resources for Virginia Families

If you are getting ready to retire – or helping a parent – things are getting complicated these days, aren’t they?

Taking care of yourself, your grown kids, your parents, all at the same time, can be an exhausting proposition. Not to mention confusing and difficult. So how do you pay for long term care anyway? And what facilities are best? And do you really need a Will if you don’t have a lot of stuff? And what if your loved one has memory loss, how can you get a POA? And what about Medicaid?

So many questions to ask. But where do you start?

The best place to start is with the following free resources for Virginia families. They help explain the legal, financial, and medical issues associated with retirement.

The Virginia State Bar publishes a Senior Citizen Handbook, which is a comprehensive guide to planning for retirement, choosing medical care, drafting estate planning documents, and much more.

We provide our clients – and anyone who calls our office at (540) 985-0098 – with a free copy of our book, Consumer’s Guide to Long-Term Care in Virginia. Give us a call, and we’ll send a copy in the mail.

Both of these free resources are a great place to start.
