There are many what ifs in life. So, why not take steps to address some of these? No matter how much we want to deny it, we are all aging. And with age come certain health concerns and conditions. It is possible that a day will come when one can no longer care for him or herself. Whether that means getting in-home care or residing in a nursing home, it is important to have these details clear and in writing.
