My clients have taught me many lessons in my Elder Law practice over the past seventeen years, but one of the most important is about love. I have worked with couples that have been together for over 50 years, when one of them has to go to a nursing home or assisted living. For them, it is not just about protecting assets, or estate planning, it is about being there for a spouse in sickness and in health. I have seen their heart break, while they love and support each other. I am there at the end of their love story. It can be a very difficult time, but I also see the great strength they have and the beautiful familes that they created that are there to support them.
This video is a great example of how that love can change but is always there.
