November is National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month. At the Law Office of Julie Low, we often get calls from people who haven’t done any estate planning and now find themselves in a crisis situation with regard to a loved one who has Alzheimer’s disease. If you become sick or disabled, either temporarily or permanently, who will make financial decisions for you? A Power of Attorney allows you to appoint someone you trust to do just that. If you cannot pay bills, get records or make other financial decisions due to physical or mental limitations, your family may be prevented from helping you. Arranging for a Power of Attorney now can save the $4000-$5000 in legal fees that a conservatorship or guardianship process can cost. To learn more about Power of Attorney and other important estate planning documents, please attend one of our educational workshops. Dates, times, and further information are available here.
