Every day, across America, countless people lose the ability to speak.  Whether it be from ALS, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury, Brain Tumor, or neurological causes, imagine how your life would change the instant you lost the capability to make words.  How would your loved ones know what you wanted to eat, whether you wanted to go outside, or if you wanted visits from family or friends?

If you’re like most people, you’d be lost; terrified and unable to express yourself.  It could be days or weeks before you and your loved ones devised even the most rudimentary systems for communication.  Imagine the stress, the tears, and  potentially even the family fights over your care.  

That is why many of the Estate Plans we create at Jeffrey P. Reisner, Esq., include Personal Care Plans designed to enable you to be very specific about how you would like to be cared for, treated, and indulged in the event you lose the ability to speak.  

Don’t leave how your loved ones in the dark about your care. Come to a workshop and learn how to communicate your desires to your family to eliminate the stress and disputes that all too often accompany these types of events.
