Good luck with your plan…You seem to be organized…I will be organizing with my lawyer a codicil to my will and power of attorney for care that I am appointing a second person of trust so that my son will have someone available to help him or take over if it is too much for him and he requests. I feel I can relax a bit now. I plan to age in place with my paintings and books close to hand…Happy Birthday to you in 13 days. You are an admirable example to look up to.

Thank you very much. I have a trust so the next trustee will be looking after things – either me in assisted living, or winding up the trust when I die. My attorney (whom I worked for for 23 years) added a Power of Appointment so that he will work with her and I will leave written wishes.

I am 85, will be 86 in about 3 weeks. I live alone with a daughter and son-in-law about 15 miles away; very rural part of Ozarks. It's beautiful here and I've been in my home for 24 years now. Lost my husband of 60 years about 9 years ago. Lately my memory is getting worse and I wear a contact around my neck in case " I fall and can't get up"!
Getting so I get confused handling finances; recently hired a couple to do my windows, also had some guys remove old carpets and install vinyl tile in 2 bedrooms. I began to get confused with writing checks, etc.! Never happened before!!! My daughter was on vacation in Colorado. I should have waited, right?
