Planning for Peace of Mind

When a family member has been diagnosed with a serious illness or has trouble completing activities of daily living, the time comes to discuss potential avenues to pay for at-home care, or nursing home care.  Long term care planning allows you to pay for the care your loved one needs and deserves, while preserving and protecting your loved one’s assets.  Although most people don’t think about at-home care or nursing home care until reaching a certain age, we strongly urge people of all ages to consider  long term care planning for their future, and the future of their loved ones.

Last Will & Testament

Build a Blueprint for your Legacy

Without a will, your estate must go through probate, leaving it up to the court to determine how your assets should be distributed.  However, with proper estate planning you can provide your surviving family members with legal direction on how to distribute your assets, and fulfill your final wishes in a way that is cost-effective, fast, and easy on your loved ones.  Together, we’ll work with you to ensure a well-designed estate plan that will be effectively executed and administered.
