A power of attorney is an important legal document that names a trusted person to act on your behalf. This is necessary for a caregiver when applying for financial assistance, or even paying bills and taxes. This AARP article outlines the importance of having these documents in place early.
It is important for you to consult with an experienced elder law attorney in order to tailor these documents to your specific needs, and discuss other necessary estate planning documents. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
