Do I need more than a will or trust?
Short Answer is Yes. You need things in place in case you become incapacitated before you die. Not a fun thing to think about, but necessary. Many if not most people suffer this situation. Those with any kind of dementia, cancer patients that are too medicated to make proper decisions or to execute documents and others need these forms. The primary documents you will need are a Durable Power of Attorney, a Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare and possibly a Living Will.
