Here at Burris Law, we are often asked what someone should do today to plan for tomorrow – especially as we all live through the challenges of keeping our families healthy during a pandemic. We would like to share three really important things you can do to be prepared for whatever the future will bring, recognizing that we will all need help at some point with key health care and financial decisions.
The best part about taking care of these preparations now is that doing so can bring peace of mind not only to yourself but also to your friends and loved ones who will want to know that they are fulfilling your wishes.
Let us introduce you to the value of an Advance Healthcare Directive, also referred to as a Medical Power of Attorney, a Living Will and a Financial Durable Power of Attorney. And if you are taking care of someone with special needs, we would also like you to be aware of the benefits of a Supplemental Needs Trust.
Of course, we are always here to answer your questions and suggest what is most appropriate to your own individual circumstances.
