Noticing an older loved one having trouble caring for him or herself can be difficult for New York residents and those elsewhere. Some adult children may notice that their parent is having trouble remembering certain things or has not been paying bills or handling other matters as necessary. In some cases, the issues could reach a point where an adult child needs to seek guardianship over a parent.
For many New York residents, one of the most complicated aspects of planning for the future relates to health care. Part of your estate planning may include creating a health care advance directive and/or a living will to state your preferences for medical treatment. Another essential part of planning ahead includes figuring out how to cover health care expenses. One option is investing in long-term care insurance, which may help offset the cost of extended care.
