As we age there are a number of legal and financial considerations we must worry about. In addition to making sure we have sufficient assets to provide for our care as we age, we may also need assistance managing our finances and ensuring our assets are passed down in an appropriate manner to our heirs. In order to develop a strong financial plan and protect our own interests as we age, seeking the assistance of an elder law and estate planning firm is imperative. We often need to provide instructions for our care and appoint someone to deal with our financial matters in the event we are unable to do so for ourselves. These legal documents must be properly executed, witnessed and signed to protect our assets. Such document preparation includes wills, trust preparation and management, power of attorney and medical directives.
