Before you put a loved one in a nursing home learn as much as you can about the facility. Among the nursing homes of South Florida, Hollywood Hills was not highly regarded.

Estate planning is one of the greatest acts of love you can ever accomplish for your family and for yourself. It's not about dying - it's about celebrating life. It's about thoughtfully addressing the challenges you may face later in life, so that your "golden years" can live up to that name. It's about realizing that some of the most important moments in the lives of your loved ones will take place after you're gone, and that you have the unique opportunity, if you choose to take it, to help make those moments the best they can possibly be.
