Estate Planning, long-term care insurance, and retirement planning have been on my mind since my mid-40s!
Working as a Psychologist at long-term care facilities and watching my elderly parents struggle with chronic medical conditions made me think of my own estate planning a decade ago.
I purchased long-term care insurance in my early 40s yet I haven’t revised my living will since I remarried. The struggle is real.
It is an ongoing struggle to get all of our affairs in order… who wants to think about post-retirement years when you are not even a senior as of yet?!
My dad died unexpectedly and there was no living will. It was a complete mess. Tension was high among family members. Controversial discussions were held. At the end of the day, I was hurt, betrayed, disappointed and completely stressed out and emotionally spent.
This is the reason I recently finalized my decision on moving into a life care retirement community in two years.
I want to be R-E-A-D-Y and live life abundantly, courageously and to the fullest without any reservation or concerns about leaving any troubles behind once the Lord calls me home.
I want to leave a legacy, unforgettable memories and loving relationships instead.
