Care Planning Archives

Intense estate planning litigation surrounds Sumner Redstone

A great deal of media attention in Ohio and across the nation has centered on Sumner Redstone, an aging media mogul who is worth an estimated $5 billion. One lawsuit aimed at gaining access to a portion of Redstone's fortune was recently dismissed, but a new legal challenge is just getting started. As the physical and mental health of the billionaire declines, several parties are trying to gain control over his vast fortune by attacking his existing estate planning measures.

Life insurance can also address incapacity issues

Shopping for life insurance is something that Ohio residents do to ensure that their loved ones are taken care of after they are gone. What many do not know is that there are life insurance options that can benefit an individual during his or her lifetime as well as provide benefits to loved ones when the time comes. If an individual is challenged with incapacity, having this coverage can make a world of difference in how care will be provided.

Thanksgiving is a good time to discuss incapacity planning

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, many Ohio families are planning their celebrations. For some, the holidays are the only time of year when the entire family is gathered under one roof. Having loved ones all together and focused on gratitude could be an ideal setting to broach the subject of incapacity planning. While the topic can be difficult for many, it is vitally important that the matter is discussed, and it is far more convenient to have that discussion when everyone is in the same place.

Death can lead to complications for unmarried couples

More and more people are choosing to postpone marriage, and many are choosing to avoid the institution altogether. Many in Ohio are perfectly content to live with their partner in a fulfilling and committed relationship, the duration of which surpasses many marriages. While there is nothing wrong with choosing a path that does not lead down the aisle, unmarried couples do have a different set of needs when it comes to protecting against financial losses that might follow the unexpected death of one partner.

Potential problems that can derail your SSDI petition

If you are having a hard time getting a straight answer about your application for Social Security disability benefits; especially why it is being delayed (or even denied) you are certainly not alone. Long waiting times for application decisions are unfortunately par for the course with arguably the largest bureaucracy in the federal government.

Is retirement about luck or planning?

A person’s golden years should be lived with the vibrancy and vigor as his or her earlier years. After all, retirement is earned and should be enjoyed. Unfortunately, there are scores of elderly Americans who can’t enjoy the American dream of living out their golden years in a carefree manner.

Additional advantages of home health care services

In our prior post, we highlighted the different measures of care that a home health care service can provide to elderly Ohioans. Essentially we highlighted the services surrounding medical care, assistance with dressing and bathing, and even services to make welfare checks and take patients to doctor’s appointments.

Beware of scam artists who want your income tax refund check

April 15th is still a few weeks away; and while many people who expected refund checks have already received them, there are still quite a number of people who have not filed their returns yet and will be entitled to a refund. This means that scam artists are still lurking in an attempt to get  those checks.

2015 could see more disabled workers in the workplace

In 2015, the U.S. economy is expected to grow steadily, and the first quarter of the year appears to be following that prediction. Even though it is early, there is reason for optimism as people who had struggled for years to get back into the workforce appear to be poised for a positive year.

Why holiday shopping may be difficult for the disabled

Tis the season to do holiday shopping. This may a joy to many people, but it be annoying when you have to search far and wide for a parking spot. This can be made even more difficult if you are disabled and the handicapped spaces are continually full.
