If You Don’t Have a Will or Living Trust, It Should be on Your COVID-19 Preparation List
Being prepared has become paramount during these uncertain times in America. The spread of COVID-19 is an unprecedented event in the history of modern civilization. There is still so much that is unknown about this disease. As a result, Americans are taking drastic measures to ensure the safety of themselves and their loved ones. The local and federal government has instated measures to protect the population from this novel virus. These measures include, but are not limited to canceling public events, closing borders, and sheltering in place. Even with all of these measures in place, the virus continues to spread.
Seniors Have Been Restricted the Most During This Pandemic
Data has shown that seniors and those with underlying health conditions are the most vulnerable to this disease. The federal government is urging both groups to stay home and away from other people. This includes their families and friends who come to visit them. This has made preparing for the pandemic exceptionally difficult for seniors. They must rely on others to bring them the supplies they need. Even if they are receiving care and supplies, finding peace of mind can still be difficult.
Without regular contact, many seniors are left to wonder how their families are faring. But more importantly, they are left to wonder what kind of medical care they will receive if they become infected and incapacitated. With no one they trust coming to their bedside, they will be left to the mercy of a doctor they’ve never met. Others are left wondering what will happen to their loved ones if the virus ends up being fatal for them.
Find Peace of Mind with a Will and Living Will
A will and a living will are two legal documents that can give many seniors peace of mind. A living will, more commonly known as an advanced healthcare directive, lays out exactly how you want to be medically treated in the event you are unable to communicate. This document can cover CPR, medical ventilation, tube feeding, dialysis, antibiotics, and palliative care. It can also outline situations where someone does not want to be resuscitated and if they want to donate any organs or tissue.
A will outlines a person’s final wishes. For many seniors, this is the last act of love they give to their family and friends. This document details who will get what assets and how much. For both a will and a living will, it is important to be as detailed as possible and address as many situations that can be thought of.
Drafting a Will and Living Will While Maintaining Social Distancing
During these troubling times, many businesses have taken this opportunity to give back to their communities. Restaurant owners have donated food. Brewmasters have created homemade hand sanitizer. Others bring people the supplies they need despite the personal risks.
Jesse Kalter and LeAnn Schumann are in a unique position to serve as one of these community resources. This team of experienced estate and trust lawyers can help seniors find the peace of mind they have been looking for when it comes to their health and family.

This allows for Jesse and LeAnn to interact virtually with their clients while drafting a will or living will, so all possible areas can be addressed and questions can be answered. That way seniors can stay home, stay safe, and be prepared during these uncertain times.
