Does your mom rely on you more and more to take care of her affairs? Would you like to know how a power of attorney could make both of your lives easier?
Hi everyone, I’m Elsa W. Smith. Your Maryland estate planning attorney and the host of Women Winning Wednesdays -a show with a mission to empower women through estate planning
This week’s topic was “Help, I need a POA for my mom.” Even though this episode is in response to the many calls we’ve received from stressed out adult kids, I invited adults kids and their moms to watch.
I touched on three important points:
- We talked about what mom should look for when choosing a POA agent;
- We discussed the dangers of mom choosing the wrong person as her POA agent; and
- Why it’s important for mom to take action to protect herself once she receives an adverse diagnosis (if not sooner).
