Estate Planning is About More than Deciding Who Gets What

Estate planning is about a lot more than determining who gets to inherit what. While handling property and assets is an important part of the estate planning process, a well-constructed estate plan should protect a person and their family no matter what tomorrow brings. Among other things, this means preparing for incapacity and preparing for future healthcare needs. 

Power of Attorney (POA) is an Important Estate Planning Document

Every person should have a power of attorney in place. In Pennsylvania, a POA is a legal document that allows someone to grant another person the authority to act on their behalf. The scope of authority granted through a POA in Pennsylvania can include financial management, healthcare decisions, and even day-to-day activities. Notably, a durable power of attorney can be effective during a period of incapacity. If you are unable to make your own financial or legal affairs, the person with your POA can act as your agent and handle things on your behalf. 

A Living Will Allows a Person to Control their Own Medical Decisions

A living will is another essential estate planning tool. It grants people the ability to control their medical treatment, even in situations where they cannot communicate their wishes. A living will can outline specific directives regarding medical care, such as end-of-life care preferences. The instructions in a living will take priority of the decisions by someone with POA.

Comprehensive Interdisciplinary Approach

Empowering Clients with Holistic Planning at
Keystone Elder Law

At Keystone Elder Law, we believe that the physical, social, legal, and financial considerations of our clients all intertwine. We utilize an interdisciplinary approach to evaluate each area, which allows for the creation of a plan that addresses the concerns of the individual as a whole as well as the family. To this end, our model of practice includes a Care Coordinator (usually a nurse or social worker), whose expertise complements our team of attorneys.

When the road of life is smooth, decisions about legal and financial matters are easy to push aside for “a rainy day.” Planning ahead, however, will allow for more options as you view the map of where you’ve been and where you want to go. Don’t let a crisis limit your choices or derail your plans.
