There seems to be a misconception floating around that estate planning is difficult. This isn’t the case. Getting the estate plan together is actually fairly simple. The hardest part might be deciding what you are going to leave to whom and what you want in your final days. We are here to guide you through the entire process.
When we meet with you, we will find out what goals you have for your estate. This can give us an idea of what we need to include in the estate plan. Sometimes, the plan is as simple as creating a will. In other cases, there are multiple documents and components to the plan. Even if your estate plan is one of the more complex ones, our guidance can take the guesswork out of it.
One of the reasons why people assume that estate planning is difficult is because they have to address the fact that they aren’t going to live forever. They have to think about leaving their loved ones behind. We can’t take this aspect of the process away, but we can remind you that you are doing all of this so that you can make sure they are taken care of when you are gone.
As you are thinking about your final days and getting things in order for your living will and powers of attorney, you need to think about what you can do to make these days easier on your loved ones. Having as many of your wishes spelled about medical and palliative care identified can make things less stressful for them.
