PREPARING FOR LIFE’S UNEXPECTED CHALLENGES

Longstreet Elder Law & Estate Planning is about planning.  It is in our name.  However, as the older and wiser among us know, life has a way of throwing unexpected things at us.   

The Covid-19 Virus certainly qualifies as one of those unexpected moments in life.  As of the writing of this article, we do not quite know how this will play out.  Luckily, our team has been slowly implementing technology to create greater efficiency and client service. Now, we can take care of our clients no matter where we are and no matter where they are.  While we always prefer meeting face-to-face with your families, we are not dependent on our physical space to carry on with helping you take care of your family and loved ones. 

To deal with the Covid-19 virus specifically, we made and implemented plans to reduce the possible spread of disease in our office, everything from ensuring employees can work from home and encouraging this practice if there is even the slightest concern of infection, to sanitizing all surfaces, even our pens, staplers and door handles.  Our mission is to take care of your families, and we have been planning to make sure we carry on with that mission, even during the unexpected. We are prepared and available to take care of your families, whether we do it in our physical space or through phone calls and virtual meetings.  We also implemented a “Drive-up and Sign” protocol so we can have clients sign documents from the safety of their cars. The idea is that there are multiple avenues to complete your plan or improve a plan that has been in place.

If you are feeling unprepared, or you just have a few questions about your estate plan or long-term care / Medicaid plan, we at Longstreet Elder Law would love to talk to you about making or updating a plan.
