I recently attended a traumatic brain injury support group in Sussex County, New Jersey. I had the pleasure of being their invited guest speaker for that month’s meeting. Present at the support group meeting, besides a number of survivors were their elderly family members, who in many cases served as the survivors primary care giver. A number of these family members expressed concern for who was going to take care of their son or daughter after they passed away. I explained to them that the time to deal with that issue was now, not later, and certainly not after they had passed away. It is important that care givers retain an attorney who specializes in elder law that can help them establish the necessary trusts, guardian papers and other legal documents that will be needed to help resolve these issues when they ultimately do occur. The time to plan is now, not later.
