Overview Counsels disabled or chronically ill patients on the process of making final arrangements, in a guide that covers everything from establishing preferences for convalescent care and the management of assets after death to key interests pertaining to life insurance, living trusts, and power of attorney designations.
Though the task can be daunting, arranging for the eventuality of death is a necessary undertaking. The planning of one's estate takes on even greater urgency for those living with chronic disease or disability. This practical guide clarifies the process and addresses all pertinent topics — from the establishment of preferences regarding convalescent care in the event of further disability to the management of assets after death. In addition, questions regarding life insurance, living trusts, power of attorney, and when to work with a lawyer are answered. Though legalities can be intimidating, this final and most important of legal tasks need not be fraught with confusion.
