Although I wrote a book on aging years ago entitled MY PARENT, MY TURN with Harris H. McIlwain, MD, a Tampa-based Board Certified Rheumatologist and Geriatrician, I never fully grasped what the “grab words” meant. It’s true. It’s not until you are thrown into a situation that the words you have heard become a reality.
It’s the weekend, so I’m throwing these words out to you. Do you fully understand the following? Are you set up legally with the proper paperwork – your Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney, Health Surrogate. Personal Will and more? If not, it’s time to look into these terms and make sure that IF something happens to you or your significant other, you will stay out of Probate Court.
Let me know how you stand.
