The realization that a family member can no longer care for themselves places a tremendous stress on the people closest to them.  Someone must step up to take charge.  Many decisions must be made now.  Potential caregivers inevitably have questions:

  • Who makes decisions over a loved one’s finances?
  • Who will make healthcare decisions?
  • Are alternate living arrangements necessary?
  • How does an estate plan help a family member who needs care?

These are just a few of the questions that Hobbie & Hobbie, Attorneys At Law, LLC can answer.  Depending on the location of each party’s residence, different laws may apply.  In general, estate plans help to resolve some of these concerns.  So long as the signatory is competent and understands what it means to authorize power of attorney, it is possible to have a family member make lifecare decisions, financial choices, and alternative living arrangements.

For legal advice tailored to a particular set of circumstances, it is important to seek the advice of an attorney.  Edward J.
