I don’t need long term care now, but worry what will happen if I do in the future. When do I need to start planning?

It is helpful to discuss long-term care needs when you’re planning for retirement. Advance planning generally provides more flexibility than crisis planning, although crisis planning is better than no planning. Making sure your estate plan is complete is essential to giving you tools for crisis planning.

What’s the difference between an advanced medical directive and a living will?

An advanced medical directive says who will make medical decisions for you if you can’t do so. On the other hand, a living will is your statement of the care you want in the event of a terminal condition or persistent vegetative state.

At Promise Law, we combine both of these into one document to make sure people know who can make the decisions for your and the decisions they can make.
