Caught in the Middle: Talking with Family

Raising a family AND taking care of your aging parents is a whole new stage of life that sneaks up on most of us. It’s a sudden, overwhelming responsibility of making decisions for more people – and making sure they’re the right decisions.

Instead of feeling worried, take action. After getting your family’s estate plan together, talk to your parents about what they do (or don’t!) have in place. Let them know why making these decisions now is important for the whole family. 

To make this easier for you, we’ve created a conversation guide. It includes tips for discussing the following important topics:

  • Housing Situations
  • Financial Responsibilities
  • Medical Decisions

Once you’ve talked this over with them, schedule a meeting with Alles Law to discuss what documents need to be created or updated. We can build on the conversation you’ve already started with your parents and design a plan that’s personalized to what they need.
