Drafting a will or trust, as part of a comprehensive estate plan, may reduce the likelihood that you will become the victim of financial exploitation during an extended illness, after an accident, or due to the normal aging process. Unfortunately, there are people who take financial advantage of the ill and elderly. These people may be family members or even caregivers. Good financial planning can make your assets harder to reach, and can make attempts by others to access assets more noticeable to you and to people who are in a position to help you such as: other family members; lawyers; trustees; or accountants.
