In addition to the questions listed in our previous few posts, here are two more key questions you might consider when planning for taking care of an elder family member:
Am I living a healthy lifestyle and taking care of myself?
Do I have a plan in place in the event of an emergency?
It is often difficult to answer these questions objectively, yet the issues can be of critical importance over time. Therefore, these questions must be taken seriously, and might best be considered with the help of a trusted advisor.
There are many resources available to help you with these issues. Please contact your elder attorney for assistance.
