Caregivers are faced with many challenges – financial, emotional and logistical. And when you are appointed as guardian or conservator, these complications are often amplified. To prevent problems, consider the following while your loved one is still in good health:
· Have a care plan in place, detailing specific wishes.
· Review any estate plans. Make sure everything is in order, and end-of-life wishes are clearly stated.
· Have a good grasp on your loved one’s finances.
And if you need legal representation, be sure you select an attorney that is knowledgeable, responsive and compassionate enough to guide you through with grace.
