It’s not just about you. You better get things in order including making a long-term care plan because you’ll want to be certain of your survivors’ comfort level with taking on the task and their understanding of your intentions.
From the survivors’ perspective, it’s important they understand your intentions and plans for your estate. Lack of clear communication during estate planning (or an inadequate or outdated plan) can not only reduce the amount your beneficiaries receive, it can also result in uncertainty and conflict for them in an already difficult time.
The kindest thing you can do for your family is to leave clear instructions for them. Yes, these conversations can be difficult. We can help with that.
