Most families have to make nursing home decisions when something tragic has already occurred – a fall, a stroke, dementia diagnosis, etc.

What if all the 65 years olds in Virginia (1) made a will; (2) appointed a health care power of attorney; (3) consulted with a financial planner re: how to pay for long term care; (4) toured different “retirement communities” and (5) planned their own funeral and (6) drafted end of life documents like a DNR…

Think that would alleviate some of the stress your family would experience making these decisions without time to plan?

Concerned about the nursing home taking your assets leaving nothing for your kids? Eldercare attorneys can help! Please take the time to consult with a professional while you have the time, and the means… It could be a a great financial blessing for your family in the long run, as well as a huge help!
