How Do You Define End Of Life Planning?
What exactly does end of life planning mean?
It’s a straightforward question and it’s one most people would be able to answer partially to begin with.
The usual suspects would crop up first, creating a will, power of attorney, appointing an executor.
But what else do most people miss out with their end of life planning?
End Of Life Planning Helps Loved Ones
The biggest thing people don’t appreciate with their end of life planning is the effect it has on their loved ones.
How many times have you heard, or experienced, a family member passing away and all the responsibility falling onto someone who never asked for it?
I hear so many stories of families fighting over inheritance, personal belongings that only have emotional value….
Or even the pressure of having to decide someone else’s funeral arrangements, what if family can’t agree and they, or you, got it wrong?
Surely the person who just passed away wouldn’t have wanted that?
Instinctively, death isn’t something you think about on a day by day basis (unless you’re already working in the end of life arena).
So why not get ahead of the curve and get your end of life plan sorted?
What is in a good end of life plan anyways?
