Incapacity Planning

 

Incapacity Planning

Incapacity planning involves making your wishes known in the event you become physically or mentally incapable of managing your affairs.

This can be a result of a severe medical condition, and automobile accident, being a victim of crime, etc. In this situation you may need assistance with basic activities such as cooking, cleaning, shopping, bathing, or dressing or more complicated matters such as paying bills, gifting money or assets, selling your home, managing your investments or making important medical decisions.

Having appropriate documents in place such as a property power of attorney or durable power of attorney, health care power of attorney or living will, guardianship/conservatorship documents, or a revocable living trust can help ensure that your affairs are handled according to your wishes and avoid the chaos and infighting that can occur among family members with differing opinions as to your wishes.
