Article 101-Estate Planning Series: The Winter Risk to Seniors

Written by Wright Law on . Posted in Estate Planning

The last few columns I have discussed some of the ways adult children can be of assistance to aging parents.  Legal documents that can be used to help parents include a “power of attorney” which authorizes a trusted child to act in the name of a parent when handling financial or other similar matters. If the parent’s health has diminished to the point that he or she is incapacitated, and cannot handle his or her own affairs, it may be necessary for a child to be appointed as a “guardian.”

Recently, The Post Register published an article about the risks winter can bring for seniors.  I appreciate the paper raising awareness about these issues.  The article emphasized the importance of prevention, not only by being aware of the risks, but by taking steps to minimize those risks.  Children can help their parents be mindful of these issues.
