Retirement - Citizenship & Advocacy
Questions Your Child Will Want You to Ask: Who will “be there” for me when both of my parents have died? Are my extended family members and other supporters knowledgeable about the things that are important to me? Have you left a “road map” on how to best support me when you are no longer able? Who will emotionally support me when a close family dies? What are my legal rights as I age? Do I have legal documentation of my end of life wishes?
