How Do I Talk To My Elderly Parents About Estate Planning?

As your parents get older, it can be difficult to have conversations with them that revolve around their finances, and especially estate planning. Discussing finances can create tension but in order for your parents to protect themselves, it is a good idea for them to speak with an experienced attorney who can help them navigate what can be a confusing and time-consuming process. By taking the time to plan for the future, your parents can rest easier knowing that they will be able to access the entitlements that they deserve and have enough money to live a comfortable life.

Estate Planning Is About Protecting Your Parents

Let your parents know that modern estate planning is about helping ensure their comfort in the years after they’ve retired. Thanks to modern medicine and standards of living, many people live for decades after they’ve stopped working. Without proper planning, they may run out of money or not receive the medical care or housing assistance that they need as the years go by. Planning ahead will help them navigate both good times and difficult moments. Our attorney has been helping people take care of themselves for years, and he looks forward to being able to help you, too. Remember, it is never too early to start thinking about the future. In fact, the earlier you start to save and plan, the less “catching up” you will have to do once you get closer to the age of retirement.
