With Thanksgiving only a few days away and COVID-19 cases on the rise, the holidays will look a bit different this year. Thanksgiving is usually a time to sit around the table and connect with family we do not see as often as we might like. This year’s Thanksgiving table will be smaller, but hopefully the food will still be delicious and family bonds
will remain strong.
Here at Makofsky Law Group, P.C. we always encourage everyone to use time with family to not only enjoy the celebrations and holiday treats, but also to ensure that your more vulnerable loved ones are safe and having their needs met. The fact that many celebrations this year may involve a virtual aspect should not hamper this time for reflection.
Due to COVID-19 and restrictions on social gatherings, changes in personality or the physical abilities of your older or special needs relatives may have been missed over the past few months. Now is the time to check in on your loved ones and ask the hard questions. Do Mom and Dad need more help at home? Is their estate plan up to date? Should some thought be given to protecting assets against Medicaid?
Enjoy the holiday season whether it is an intimate gathering of your immediate family or a big virtual celebration with the whole gang, but pay attention to the details and what your loved ones may not be saying.
We are here to provide our advice and to help implement a plan if needed. If you think we can help, give us a call. We wish everyone a healthy and happy Thanksgiving.
