Estate Planning while in Hospice Care

Moving into or having a loved one in hospice care can be a scary, sad, and emotional experience. During this stage of one’s life, it is often the last opportunity for the individual to ensure that he or she has a proper and complete estate plan. This includes a Trust, Will, and Powers of Attorney for Health Care and Property. If the individual in hospice care is no longer able to manage his or her finances, then often they will add a loved one to their bank accounts as joint account holders or co-trustee to ensure that someone is available to assist to help pay the bills.

This is a time to make sure all of your affairs are in order. Significant post-death expenses and fees can be saved by making sure your estate planning and finances are in good order.
