In this episode of the Women's Wealth Canada Podcast, we sit down with Jennifer Leach Sandford, a lawyer specializing in wills and estates. Jennifer shares valuable insight into the importance of having a will in place and when is the best time to prepare one, especially if you have a health diagnosis that may lead to progressive illness.
We also delve into the differences between a will, power of attorney, and healthcare directives. While a will provides instructions for the distribution of your assets after you die, power of attorney and healthcare directives come into play when you lose capacity. Your healthcare representative and personal care representative make decisions on your behalf, such as whether you're going into long-term care, while the power of attorney controls the administration of your assets.
Jennifer also shares some fascinating stories of cases where wills were challenged, and why it's essential to work with a lawyer who ensures the individual giving the instructions has the necessary capacity.
Don't miss this informative episode where you'll learn everything you need to know about estate planning. So, sit back, relax, and listen to the end to discover how you can protect your future and your loved ones. 💡💼💰
