Can you send a parent with Alzheimer's to a nursing home?

You're growing worried about your parent. Alzheimer's has set in, and memory issues have turned into safety issues. Maybe a stove was accidentally left on. Maybe your parent got lost outside of the house and couldn't get home. You think it's time for mom or dad to go into an assisted living center, just for the sake of safety.

Why you need to have a will

Approximately half of all Americans have no estate plan -- not even a will. Many people understandably don't want to contemplate their own demise. Others assume that their family will sort things out once they're gone. Some think that they don't have enough assets to make it worthwhile.

Too often, people who don't have children don't have a will or other estate planning documents in place. However, in many cases, these are the people who need them the most.

Estate planning and the prevention of financial elder abuse

Elderly people, particularly those who are physically and/or mentally compromised, can be vulnerable to many types of abuse, including financial abuse.

Sometimes it comes at the hands of strangers who know that elderly people are more likely to fall for scams or give up confidential information over the phone or online.

Tips for those who may inherit property

In a number of our posts, we have talked about inheriting property. Indeed, most of them have been in the context of celebrities leaving large sums of money and properties to their heirs, but that doesn’t mean that properties are not left to regular, everyday people.  In fact, it is estimated that thousands of homes will be willed or left to children or loved ones in the next decade.

Worried about leaving an inheritance? Let the trustee handle it

Anecdotes of heirs misusing or completely blowing their inheritance are sadly not that difficult to find, and the implications of these stories can be especially troubling for people in California who are considering what to leave behind. However, this does not always have to be the case. By creating a trust for an inheritance, individuals can be assured that a named trustee will ensure the proper handling of the assets.
