Understanding a Power of Attorney

Perhaps you have heard of Caring.com, but if you haven't, you should check out their website. They are a leading resource for families that are seeking information and support for their aging parents, spouses and other loved ones, and they have been recognized by AARP and others who provide assistance to seniors. They work with families across the United States to support the seniors in their communities.

As people get older, one of the most difficult things they face is planning for the unknown. A power of attorney can help ensure that seniors, and others facing the future, will have someone of their own choosing to make arrangements for them when they are unable to do so. I recently visited with Elizabeth Thompson, who is a Community Outreach and Senior Advocate for Caring.com, and she provided me with one of their great resources for families considering a power of attorney. This online guide helps families better understand what goes into a power of attorney and the many options that families have in setting one up. You can check it out online at the following link: https://www.caring.com/caregivers/power-of-attorney/

When you or a family member are ready to take that step into planning for the unknown future, let us know, and we'll be ready to assist you in setting up a power of attorney and other legal documents to make sure that your future is well provided for.
