Based on a new survey done by AARP, our 60’s are a watershed decade when it comes to shifts in attitude regarding longevity, relationships, well-being and wealth.  At the same time, concerns about life expectancy dips, while worries about stamina, cognitive skills, diminishing eyesight and memory loss rises.  It’s not until people get into their 80’s that many people reported making necessary plans to help their families and medical team understand and carry out their end-of-life wishes, as well as planning for their assets, funeral and burial.  That seems like a long time to wait!  My suggestion is to get a living trust, will, POLST and medical and legal power of attorneys in place immediately.  You never know what the future will hold.
