Take Care of Your Loved Ones: Put a Plan in Place

When it comes to estate planning, many of the families we talk with are concerned with leaving "something" for their kids, grandkids, or other loved ones. And while this is admirable and a great goal for most, sometimes it's not realistic. Depending on your stiuation, it may be better for your own well-being to spend that money on your care (or the care of your spouse).

While it sounds selfish to say "spend that money on yourself!" the reality is that if it comes down to you or them, they would prefer you to spend on yourself. What if you are so tied up in saving something for them that your health suffers? This in turn ends up causing them worry and maybe even spending their own money to care for you? All because you wanted them to get "something" when you're gone. 

We have an idea. Instead of worrying so much about leaving your loved ones money, you focus on making sure you are taken care of. This will benefit them in the end more than any dollar amount (well, most any dollar amount). If you have a solid plan in place, you'll have peace of mind and care all lined up. Then, when your health declines (or that of your spouse) and you need to start implementing your plan, your loved ones will benefit.

They won't have to worry about taking care of you.

Rather than worry about how they'll pay for your care or what to do when you've reached a certain point, they'll know. And not only will they just know, they'll have the security of knowing that's what you wanted. They won't have to worry about making decisions, plans, or money. You'll have taken all of that burden from them, spelling out what you want and how to pay for it. 

That's what they'll want. They want YOU taken care of so that they can visit, enjoy your company, but not worry. Isn't that worth it? Ready to get started? We can help. Contact us today to learn about setting up your Legal Life PlanTM, and take the guesswork out of it for your loved ones.
