When people refer to “Estate Planning” a Will is the document that usually comes to mind. While a Will is extremely important, it is not the only document that is necessary to prepare when planning for your future.
When you think of wills your mind is probably filled with the image of a sweet elderly couple.
This month we will be focusing on an important issue in Estate Planning – elder abuse. As our population ages it is becoming more and more important to protect the interests of older age groups not just physically, but financially and emotionally.
Often we tend to assume that a Will is the most important Estate Planning document. However, our ageing population goes to show just how important the other Estate Planning documents are.
If you need to go through old drawers, push past scrap paper and old receipts, then wipe away a layer of dust - all to find your Will - then chances are that it needs updating.
