We spend our lives caring for and supporting our families, providing them with everything they need to be successful, being there for them during times of hardship, joyfully celebrating their accomplishments and sharing compassionately in their burdens. One of the best ways to continue to express this same love for our families even after death or serious illness is to make provisions for our finances, healthcare, property and final expenses while we are still capable of making informed decisions.
Failure to plan for death or possible disability can be a costly and cumbersome mistake. Without any clear sense of what an incapacitated family member would have wanted, relatives who are already struggling with the emotional toll of a loved one’s illness may also have to make difficult decisions about medical treatment or financial management on their behalf, which can become an overwhelming burden. Furthermore, in the absence of a will or a living trust, probate proceedings can be lengthy, expensive and confusing, as well as potentially divisive for families that must figure out how to deal with a loved one’s home and other assets after their death.
