Disability may naturally come with age

Nobody likes to think about the aches and pains that develop over the years. It can be hard to come to terms with how difficult some activities become in comparison with your younger days.

In many cases, the natural aging process can lead to serious problems that get in the way of daily life. Even if you still have a decade or more of working years ahead of you, a disability could surface early. Unfortunately, disabilities related to aging might not go away with treatment.

Why to appoint a guardian for your special needs adult child

As you plan for the future with your attorney, remember to include provisions for any special needs adult child you have. This entails more than just leaving assets in a will or setting up a trust. Finances are necessary, of course, but they only cover one part of the care of your child. The other part is naming a guardian.

Guardianship grants a person the legal ability to make financial or caregiving decisions for someone who is not able to do so. The capabilities of your child will determine how much power to give the guardian and in which area(s). You also have the option of naming a different person for each category.
