Article 99-Estate Planning Series: How Should You Help Your Aging Parent?

Written by Wright Law on . Posted in Estate Planning, Long Term Care, Will

It is not uncommon for me to receive a call from an adult child concerned about a parent’s decreasing ability to care for him or herself.  Circumstances often require assistance the child does not have the ability to provide.

Without sufficient assistance, bad things can happen.   It only takes an instant for an aging parent to fall.  One third of seniors will fall each year (longtermcare.gov).  Falls are the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries for seniors, and often lead to a new series of health issues.  By age 75, a fall is four times more likely to result in admittance to a skilled nursing facility.
