Last column I wrote about the heartbreak I see in some seniors who feel as if they are nothing more than a source of money or assets to those who will be left when they pass. No estate plan can exceed the blessing of the lives and lessons we learn from those who came before us. Their values surely exceed their valuables.

My purpose in writing these columns is to help readers make informed estate planning decisions, including “end of life” decisions. To accomplish that purpose, I try to address legal issues using “every day” terms.
It is one thing to understand a legal issue; it is another to be prepared when the complications of life arise. In my professional experience, there is no better example than long term care planning. More and more seniors, and their families, are learning the importance of planning for long term care needs . . . and the incredible difficulties that can arise when no planning is done.
