Improve lives–and deaths

We elder caring lawyers have an attitude beyond being purveyors of legal documents—we want to improve lives—and deaths. Let’s see how to apply that to lowly POAs.

First ask ourselves

If we are to ask these meaning questions of and for our clients, we owe it to them to first ask them of ourselves.

Sterile side-lights

We elder caring attorneys don’t think of POAs as sterile side-lights to Wills and Trusts.

A special question seat

Being a lawyer means much more than having a license and a shingle. We have learned to observe and see what matters and compare it to what has mattered through the ages. In working with—and caring for—elders we get a special seat to see what matters in the final moments and once in a while help a few to ask their own essential questions. What is the meaning of a life? My life? What can that meaning yet be? What can it mean For the Grandchildren?

Speak in novels and poetry

Speak O Elder to the grandchildren
Speak in novels and poetry
in music, dance, in things
that last and things that don’t
Speak in work and especially in play
Speak in all your voices
For the grandchildren
