Show some resolve!

Like Christmas and New Year Holidays, all good things must come to an end. When all the turkey has been gobbled up, the crackers pulled and the tinsel taken down, it’s back to work. Bah Humbug!

Some things are predictable, but some are not. No one can predict the wheel of fortune as it falls (my parents tell me that was Karen Carpenter). Tragic incidents happen everywhere and have made the headlines all too often in 2017. Bombs and vans and knives, trains falling from bridges, you never know the day.

This is all a bit yuk for Christmas. I am not normally one for conjuring up images of the Grim Reaper to scare people in to coming to see me but when you think about it, why else would you be making a Will if it was not for the dreaded D word? We may be lucky enough not to know when, but it is coming for us all.

In some cases, it can be sudden. In others, it may be something we have a long time to prepare for, but either way, we should not put it off as the sooner we do it, the sooner we can stop worrying about it.

And on our way to death, life can deal us some pretty low blows. Dementia is now the biggest killer in the UK and at present we seem powerless to stop it. It takes away so much of what makes us who we are and makes life difficult for us and those around us. It can put huge strains on those that care for us and often leads to long term care needs that are not covered by the NHS as the needs of many dementia sufferers, whilst huge, are not complex enough to trigger funding for Continuing Care. And so we pay for ourselves in care and can see our savings that we worked so hard to put together evaporate at a rate we could not have imagined.

So, when you have boxed up the Christmas Decs for another year, eaten all the sprouts and that one last Christmas pudding, why not resolve to come to see us to sort out your future planning?

Get your Will sorted, your finances in order, your assets all wrapped up and properly protected and choose who should make decisions about your money and your medical treatment if you can’t do it yourself. Then you can relax knowing that if something unforeseen does happen to you, the ones you leave behind are in the best position they can be to deal with it.

Don’t we all want a happy ending?
