Guide your clients through challenging choices

With over 55.8 million people aged 65 or older in the United States, a significant portion of the population is grappling with estate planning and end-of-life considerations, either for themselves or their elderly parents.1 The process of documenting end-of-life medical decisions, assuming the role of a guardian, or managing an estate’s affairs can be daunting for your clients. In a brief span, your clients need to absorb a substantial amount of information, and given your demanding schedule, you may not always be able to address every question.

Not to worry! Consumer Handbooks can be there when you can’t explain the basics of probate, health care decisions, and guardianship clearly and compassionately.
