Talking to Parents About Estate Planning

One of the most common questions Attorney Löan Shillinger gets asked comes from adults with aging parents. These “adult children” want to ensure that their parents have made plans for their future care. They want to know if there are legal documents in place to allow them to assist their parents in time of need, such as Power of Attorney, AHCD, and ultimately testamentary documents.

Over a series of short videos, Löan gives advice to adult children who might be dealing with parents who are facing one of three situations.
