  • October 7, 2013 /  Estate Planning Thoughts

    financeThis is one of the basic items for estate planning. When in the mood, one thinks about a will or a trust or who to name as executor (will) or successor trustee (trust), putting the house into the trust, who gets what precious and valuable items, how to divide the estate among the family beneficiaries (if they receive anything at all) and what to do at the end of one’s life but the beneficiary of a company retirement plan or IRA or SEP IRA or even a simple bank account frequently gets overlooked.

    Here is an article from Market Watch on Yahoo Finance that might stir you to action if you haven’t looked at it previously.

    Enjoy!

    Here is an article from Ken Covinsky on Kevinmd.com.

    smiling nurse I too, have found that not only are the nurses and doctors in an assisted living and skilled nursing have a lack of concise or correct information to the recent care of their patient in a hospital but also the patient’s primary care doctor (PCD) lacks the same information! Each time I have had my client come back to their respective communities, I have had to readdress the medications given them with their PCD as well.

    In advocating on my client’s behalf, I request the attending physician in the skilled nursing community work with my client’s PCD. The PCD usually does not want to “interfere” with the skilled nursing doctor but, as far as I am concerned, the PCD are the ones who know my client’s medical history the best and are most likely to better understand their needs.

    I had a blind guitar instructor in college. He knew his way around campus (Sac State) and was more than proficient playing the guitar. He didn’t need help, taught me the right way to “guide” him (he held on to my arm) when he needed help in negotiating or was lazy in using his stick, and amazed me with his independence.

    One day he was teaching me a fancy lick on the guitar and all of a sudden he “disappeared”. I mean, not physically but mentally…personality left. He was quite for a few moments and then asked, “Where am I, who are you?” I asked him if he was okay and he started getting agitated so I told him my name and that we were in his house. He asked what was going on and why he couldn’t see anything. At that moment I remembered that sometimes when someone “blanks” out that it could be a form of epilepsy.

    the arc logoI don’t know why I should think of that right then but I decided to “play along” with him. I told him that the lights went out, we were waiting for them to come back on and that, in the meantime, I was playing guitar for him. So I asked if I could continue and he was okay with that.

    When he “came back” he again, asked what happened. This time I used his name and asked him, “Is that you?” Answering in the affirmative he asked if I understood what just happened. I told him that I guessed that he had an epileptic episode and he confirmed it. He was pleasantly surprised that I would know that and apologetic that he hadn’t told me that he had seizures in the past but hadn’t had any for a couple of years. He was the best guitar instructor I ever had and miss him and his corny jokes.

    The point is that I was prepared and that is one of the messages of The Arc organization. They want the public to understand and be prepared for including those with intellectual and developmental disabilities into their world. They also advocate on their behalf and provide resources.

    Please visit the national website http://www.thearc.org/who-we-are and then go to the state site http://www.thearcca.org/ and finally our local site in Roseville http://www.thearc.org/.
