The importance of end-of-life decision making

California music fans were shocked to learn of the sudden-death of rocker Tom Petty. After suffering cardiac arrest, the famous musician was treated but then removed from life support. The decision was made by Petty himself in the form of a do-not-resuscitate order that he had signed as part of his long-term care and estate planning.

Long-term care planning is vital for the LGBTQ community

Many LGBTQ Californians believe in spending for today instead of saving for tomorrow. Unfortunately, this approach may make it much more difficult when they grow older. If people need long-term care at some point in their lives, their partners may have trouble being able to pay for it.

Long-term disability insurance offers security, peace of mind

In a survey conducted by a trade association, 65 percent of those who responded said they thought most people should have disability insurance. Only 48 percent thought they themselves needed it, though, and only 20 percent actually had it. California residents might do well to incorporate a long-term disability insurance policy as part of a comprehensive long term care plan.

Is your loved one ready for an assisted living center?

As your loved ones get older, several difficult conversations may have to take place if you see that they are not able to make important life decisions on their own. Indeed, elderly loved ones may not feel comfortable giving up the autonomy and freedoms they have enjoyed for most of their lives. But as their faculties continue to erode, they may need help in maintaining a safe standard of living.
