I wanted to share this as a follow-up to last weeks post discussing the importance of having a Durable Power of Attorney (DPOA).
If you don’t already know this, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that 7 out of 10 of us will need long-term care assistance for at least 3 years. The difficulty a loved one faces when you don’t have a DPOA can be expensive, undignified and lengthy.
I hope you will consider speaking with a lawyer dedicated to the practice of estate law in your area. You should be able to get one for just a few hundred dollars.

For those of us caring for a loved one, we know how important the DPOA can be. Now it’s time to make sure we have the right tools in place and tell our loved ones how we would want them to represent us, should they ever need to be our advocates. Shared.
