Many people do not plan for the unexpected event of becoming incapacitated. For example, if you become incapacitated due to dementia, stroke, Alzheimer’s Disease or other debilitating illness, you are legally prohibited from managing your financial affairs. The common mistake people assume is that their adult children or spouse is the naturally appointed caretaker of your finances. In reality, the court must be petitioned to be appointed Conservator to manage your finances.
Have the freedom to choose what happens in an unfortunate situation and protect you and your family’s interests.
