Do you hope to live in your current home until you die? If your answer is “yes,” you’re in good company. Studies by AARP and MetLife show that 90% of Americans want to stay in their current home until the end. Yet only 30% of Americans get their wish.

Will aging at home be possible for you, even if you develop a long-term illness?

The “if you develop a long-term illness” part of that question is rarely answered in the traditional retirement planning process.

If you want to avoid being forced to move when your health fails, the key is to already be living in your “forever” home when that illness happens. You need to envision what it will take to be safe and comfortable in this home if you develop mobility issues. You need to envision what it will take to bring any care and services you need into your home. Remember, if a health crisis forces you to move, the place you’re most likely to end up is a long-term care facility.

How do you plan for this? You start by living in an age friendly home that adheres to the principles of Universal Design, a home located in an age-friendly neighborhood. You think ahead about proximity—to the care and services you’re likely to need, and to the family members who will be advocating for your wellbeing as you age. Equipping your home or relocating to a more appropriate home takes money, and it takes money to pay the people who will be providing care, so you don’t end up relying on family members to serve as unpaid caregivers.

You don’t need to spend a fortune to age at home if you do the right planning. Here’s how to get started.

Congratulations! You are about to begin the process of completing estate planning documents – for free.

Before you get started, you should know that though this service is being provided by Life Point Law, an estate planning firm, by using the free service you will not be creating an attorney-client relationship, and no attorney will review your work. Estate planning can be complicated and generally requires some degree of legal analysis to ensure you have the right provisions. Especially if you have been married more than once, you have a blended family, or you have considerable wealth. We encourage you to seek some guidance, or at the very least, have a legal professional review your work before you call it completed.

Help is available. If you’re interested in getting a second opinion on the legal documents you have created, Life Point Law offers a Peace of Mind review that can put your mind at ease knowing you have dotted all your I’s and crossed all your T’s. Let our skilled attorneys review the legal documents you have created to make sure they meet your goals.

You may also want to drop by our offices to get your documents executed (witnessed and notarized) so they are in full force and effect when they need to be used.

You will receive an email soon with information about how to schedule your Peace of Mind Consultation.

By clicking ‘Start Working on Your Free Estate Plan’ below, you will acknowledge your understanding that no attorney-client relationship exists between Life Point Law and yourself.
