The Law of Aging: Estate Planning and Beyond

by Andrey Milvidskiy, Esq.

Why do some people age so “gracefully”? They’re the people whose lives seem to fall into place easily as they age. Their physical needs are met, they have plenty of resources with which to enjoy their “golden years”…and when they pass, their children and heirs manage what’s “left behind” with seemingly instinctive skill and grace. But we also know far too many people in the opposite place: facing physical needs that overwhelm them, financial obligations that necessitate selling off personal possessions or even their very homes, and stress from children and heirs arguing about “who’s going to get what” even before they’re gone. How to have the first in your life, and not the second? It all comes down to a plan. The Law of Aging is chock-full of information designed to help you take the important first (and subsequent) steps toward making that plan…and implementing it to suit your needs, your family situations, and your future. With this as your road map and guidebook, you’ll be well on your way to that “graceful” aging—and priceless peace of mind—we all want.
