My parents are in their seventies and until this last year have have experienced pretty good health. However,this year my father had a colon cancer operation and a heart-attack! I'm happy to say he's doing fine at this time, but they are very concerned about protecting their estate/assets (which are sizeable) should things get worse, ie.,homecare, resthome etc..
I'm wondering if anyone out there has experience with this issue and might be able to offer some advice on what my parents might do to protect their assets and not lose them to the buzzards waiting on the fence! It's a damn shame folks work hard their whole life to find their GOLDEN YEARS not so GOLDEN at all due to illness and worry about losing everything they've worked for.
Your feedback would be very much appreciated!
