Being Prepared With Estate Planning

In addition to the wonderful religous holidays of Easter and Passover that we are celebrating with our loved ones, this time of year also reminds us of the old saying about it is impossible to be sure of anything but death and taxes. This bit of dark humor is also quite true, and we can all benefit from accepting these facts and planning accordingly.

One thing that we’ve all been reminded of the last couple of years is the importance of being prepared for unexpected events that are beyond our control.

Here in Florida, with regular thunderstorms and hurricane season approaching, we are acutely aware of the need for good insurance, taking safety precautions, and evacuation planning so we are prepared for conditions that can be dire to us and our property.

We are all also wise to take the practical approach of being prepared with our Estate Planning too. A difficult part of life that we are reminded of regularly is that serious accidents, illnesses, and death can occur unexpectedly.

Having Estate Plans and current documents in place, such as Health Care Surrogate and Power of Attorney, can help us and our loved ones better manage these emergency situations when they happen. By addressing these serious preparedness concerns, and being proactive about planning for the need of long-term care though comprehensive Estate Planning, we can feel more at peace and positive about our current situations and our futures. Addressing any changes or concerns you have about your and your family’s health, financial situation, and plans for the future through holistic Estate Planning is one of the most important and practical things you can do in terms of being prepared for the unexpected and the difficult realities of life that we all must face.
