Common care planning mistakes

As we age, our needs change. While our younger years may be focus on building a family and accumulating wealth; our elderly years, may focus primarily on caring for ourselves and preparing to leave our assets behind to our loved ones. Although many people are aware of the estate planning process and how it can be beneficial to them and their family, some fail to recognize the importance of long-term care planning. Thus, it is imperative to understand some of the mistakes to avoid when considering this important issue.

For decades, we have helped New Yorkers with care planning

As we age, our needs increase. We may need extensive medical care after the onset of an unexpected medical condition, long-term care may become necessary, and for some, a live-in aid may prove beneficial. As helpful as these services can be, they can also be quite costly. This can be problematic for individuals who are retired or are unable to work on account of their condition. This is why care planning is so important.

How can the elderly pay for long-term care?

As we age, our needs change. Whereas younger individuals may focus on making money and living an adventurous life, those reaching their later years may be primarily focused on how to retire with not only financial stability but also with a solid plan for their medical care. After all, medical care can be expensive, especially in one's later years. With most individuals losing insurance when they retire, most elderly individuals need to look elsewhere to ensure that their health care costs are covered.

What documents help to determine medical care?

As you age, it's important to make plans for your future health care. This isn't something that's easy to handle or think about, but taking care of the details now might help you later on. And it will almost certainly help to make life easier for your loved ones.

Why should I have a power of attorney for my health decisions?

The last thing any of us want to think about is our final days. Unfortunately, like taxes, death is inevitable. And none of us know when our time could be up. Barring any serious injury or sudden illness, our body slowly breaks down, limiting our abilities, both mental and physical. This could mean that our mental abilities break down, including the ability to communicate our wishes to family members or medical professionals
