" Thanks Kathleen for getting me started with locating my parents' legal
directives—living will and medical power of attorney and assisting me with
organizing their medical and financial records. Your referral to an elder law
attorney was great! It has helped us with long term care planning to figure out
how we will pay for costs if or when they can no longer stay at home."— Maria B.
