Granite Financial believes our clients and their children benefit from participating in structured family meetings that discuss the financial plans currently in place and the personal wishes about health care and future living arrangements. The goal is to help relieve the anxiety of eventual life transitions and act as a resource for the entire family.
In particular, we work with families to help them make decisions about their finances and health care, including:
- What retirement strategy is recommended
- What role various siblings will play
- Who will be the main person in charge of care
- Who will be the main person in charge of financial matters
- Who will the parent live with, if necessary, and when
- When would you want to go to an adult care facility and what triggers it
- Who has power of attorney and the health care proxy
- Whether a will or trust should be established*
- Who should be named the executor or trustee
- How will the executor communicate and involve others in decisions
Our most satisfying role is to be a sounding board for you. We will help you walk through the issues you may face and and help you communicate your decisions to your loved ones.
Granite Financial can assist you in developing your estate plan* and communicating your plans to your heirs. Contact our office today to set up a complimentary initial meeting.
* Granite Financial and its advisors do not provide legal advice but will coordinate with the appropriate Advanced Planning Specialist (i.e. Estate Planning Attorney, CPA)
