It is never easy for a family to learn that a loved one has limited life expectancy or a terminal illness. Not only is the news difficult to process, but families have to regroup and get the proper care for their loved ones. Ensuring that your loved ones are cared for in their final days while also dealing with their end-of-life affairs can be stressful.
Ideally, your loved one should create a will while they are still of sound mind and body that covers end of life affairs and care. However, this doesn’t always happen, and the family may have to make these decisions after a limited life expectancy or terminal illness diagnosis.
