When Communication and Estate Planning Matter Most
Recently we found ourselves in the difficult situation of needing to personally draw on the information we share and the Elder Law and Estate Planning services our office provides. When Grady and Andrew’s mother, Virginia Williams was acutely ill and hospitalized the real-world application of these materials and essential documents was of paramount importance.
Because of many thoughtful, and somewhat difficult, conversations with each other and healthcare providers, our family was able to come together and make important decisions based on Virginia’s wishes. Since we had all has direct communication with her, and she had current documents in place, we had the ability to better manage and address her needs and her care.
After her peaceful passing, we also has the opportunity to give her the type of Christian funeral and celebration of life that she wanted. Her many talks with us, and her documentation of her wishes, helped guide us and give our family more peace as we began to deal with such a significant loss.
We hope that you and your loved ones will have similar conversations and will keep your Estate Planning documents current to help you in challenging times too. Unfortunately, the reality of life is that unexpected accidents, illnesses, injuries, and deaths unfortunately can affect us all. There’s much that seems out of our control, and fortunately, there’s also much we can do to help ourselves and our loved ones.
Many people have found that addressing their Estate Planning needs has given them more peace of mind and a feeling of control. Our firm’s clients have shared with us that their decisions to create or update essential documents to protect themselves, and their loved ones, in the event of incapacity or death has helped them have improved feelings of security.
