I've heard many excuses for putting off long-term care planning, including:
"I'm never going to a nursing home."
"I have Medicare."
"I have my child's name on all of my accounts, so the state won't count those funds"
"I'm a veteran, so the VA will take care of all of my long-term care needs."
"My kids will take care of me."
"I don't have enough assets to worry about."
"I put my daughter's name on all of my accounts and she will divide everything equally among all my kids when I die."
"I have my assets in a revocable trust, so they are protected."
"I am leaving everything to my son so he can take care of my child with special needs."
"I don't want to hurt any body's feelings so I just won't do any thing."
"I'll do it LATER."
You've probably used a few that aren't on this list too. But, guess what? LATER has come. LATER is TODAY.
The Elder Law Office of Judith M. Flynn has developed a new workshop to help seniors get their affairs in order. The Legal Check Up Boot Camp (c) is a free, comprehensive workshop to give seniors all the knowledge they need about Estate and Long-Term Care Planning.
This workshop will empower the attendees to stop procrastinating and finally take control of the decisions they have been avoiding for too long.
This four-hour workshop will be taught in two sessions of two hours each. Part of the workshop will be interactive to allow attendees to discuss particular problems, concerns and situations.
This workshop will cover:
*what estate planning documents you need in order to achieve your goals and objectives;
* how to properly select Agents, Executors, and Trustees;
* whether you need a Will, a Trust, or both;
* long-term care costs and payment options (Medicare, VA benefits, Long-Term Care Insurance, Private Pay and Medicaid)
* how to protect your home and other assets;
Each attendee will receive a workbook and will "graduate" from the Boot Camp with a detailed, comprehensive plan of action.
