Kent residents can plan for a quality end-of-life experience

Kent residents may not be surprised by the results of a survey of terminally ill cancer patients that sought to determine which factors most affected a person's perception of the quality of end-of-life experiences. The most important factors identified by study participants were to avoid dying in a hospital, to avoid extreme life-sustaining procedures and to be treated with respect by their doctors. While a patient may have little ability to change a doctor's bedside manners, long term care planning can help make sure that end-of-life wishes are heard and met.

Kent guardians don't have to go it alone

Any Kent resident who has served as the guardian for a vulnerable child knows that the challenges of caring for a loved one do not end with the establishment of legal guardianship. As one father recently discovered, the difficult decisions that need to be made in the scope of everyday care can sometimes distract a guardian from big-picture issues that may arise long after legal intervention because of incapacity. Every guardian needs to remember that resources are available to help you through a trying time.

Estate planning important for Kent singles

As Kent residents may know, an increasing number of Americans find themselves spending at least part of their retirement years without a spouse. Some will fly solo through retirement due to divorce or the death of a husband or wife. Others simply choose never to marry. Although people commonly think about estate planning in terms of providing for their heirs, estate planning and long-term care planning may be equally if not more important for singles.
