thanks Susan...for the excellent info...
I agree that WE all need to know what the statutes are in our own
state...and consult legal advice to set things up to protect those we
I am sure I am not the only one here who has had family
members...inlaws..aunts uncles etc...needing full time. care....
Alzheimers and the like are really sad and progressive entities...and most
families simply cannot provide proper care .....
this topic saddens me somewhat...as science and medicine has advanced to the
point of keeping us alive for 9 or 10 decades...without a guarantee of a
meaningful life...quality vs quantity and all that
pre planning...advanced directives..power of attorney for health care (as
well as legal matters)...and a family that knows and supports each other's
plans and wishes...
just today saw my doc..and dropped off my official papers...hubby does it
end of my rant...
In some cases we don't know seven years out we are going to need
long-term care because a lot of times things just jump up and go
gotcha! However, when you stop and think about it, do they really?
Maybe it isn't seven years, maybe it's six or eight, but it really
doesn't matter. It is never to late to take care of the paper work.
Get all of your pre-planning done. Take care of those advanced
directives, let people know when you want the plug pulled. A smart
attorney can protect even the most limited of assets if you don't want
the state to get them. If you're chronically ill and haven't moved
every single asset that has a title into joint ownership with your
S.O. your a tad foolish. I'm surprised another poster even had to
bring this subject up in this day & age.
So if unlike Hawki you don't have papers to drop off (official or
otherwise) go get some done.
You can run, but you'll only die tired.
