Getting a diagnosis for a terminal illness or limited life expectancy is the type of bombshell that can shake a family to its core. This news can be difficult at first to receive and accept, and it can be very stressful for a family to continue providing care for a loved one with limited life expectancy while simultaneously dealing with end of life affairs.
The best-case scenario here is to have your loved one create a will that includes instructions for these end of life affairs, such as the type of care they would like to receive should they be diagnosed with a terminal illness or limited life expectancy.
