Having a family conversation, or discussion with an attorney, about ways to protect assets will almost certainly prevent grief and heartache in the event of an emergency. Potential topics include your loved ones' wishes with respect to end of life, whom to call in the event of a crisis, and ways to protect their money and personal property. Bringing up the subject of money may feel awkward at first, but learning the location of financial accounts, as well as where bills, deeds and wills are kept, can be a critical step in advance planning. Learning the names of your parents' lawyer, accountant and financial advisor is also important. Elder law and trust and estates attorneys can offer helpful legal tools that can be put in place to protect family members in the event of a crisis. These documents may include a durable power of attorney, a will, a revocable living trust or a health care proxy.
