Focusing on the elderly and their families

Pesach and Enduring Power Of Attorney have a lot in common. Who knew?


The holiday of freedom, celebrating our liberation from slavery.

We get ready for it weeks in advance (some of us even months but don’t tell..).

And then on Lel Haseder we finally we sit next to family and /or close friends and enjoy their company singing and reading the Haggadah.

Enduring Power of Attorney-

A document that we prepare and submit in advance, that gives us the freedom to choose how we would like our life to be handled if we, g-d forbid, lose our mental capacity and can no longer act on our own.

Preparing one is a process and can take weeks (and for some of my clients over a month) until it is ready for filing.

Once it is ready and submitted, we can continue to enjoy our life as normal, together with our family and close friends, knowing that we are now prepared for our future.

Wishing you all a חג פסח כשר ושמח!
