Holiday Visits Can Create a Heartbreaking Reality

While we all hope visits with family over the holidays are filled with laughter, stories, and memories old and new, sometimes a holiday visit pushes a heartbreaking reality to the forefront. Their traditionally tidy home is a mess, their weight is dropping and they’re quick to get angry. Your loved one is giving you cause for worry.

You’re concerned about their well-being. Has anyone else noticed? Are they able to care for themselves? Does someone need to intervene?

Often times the holidays are when families notice a decline in loved ones that might require help. With the start of the new year, January is also a good time to re-evaluate or create estate plans so family members are protected. Thankfully with careful planning and the right resources, a difficult time can be made easier.
