“Henry” is fortunate to have 4 adult children in his life. His wife pre-deceased him 2 years ago. One daughter lives out of province. In order to be equitable, Henry has listed Mary and Terry as joint Agents for his Personal Directive; Terry and Perry a joint Powers of Attorney; and Perry and Mary as joint Executors. Sounds good? Not really. None of the four siblings get along particularly well each having a variety of challenges in their personal lives from physical, to emotional, to financial. As a result, nothing is attended to in a timely manner.
Henry lives on his own with 24 hour in-home care related to mobility challenges. Assistance is required in organizing all aspects of his life from healthcare to personal care to finances.
We have stepped in to assist with everything so that the family can focus on their own challenges and just enjoy spending social time with Henry.
