Many planning strategies can scare clients, especially when discussing long term care options. But what happens if you are admitted to the hospital and you don’t have the proper documents in place to manage your affairs. Make sure to plan for your future and put your loved ones at ease by having a document in place called a Power of Attorney. In its simplest form, a properly executed Power of Attorney will name a person who is able to make decisions for you when you are unable.

They step into your shoes in a legal sense and take action on your behalf.
