My aging parent refuses to sign her will or power of attorney. Her failure to do so wil create years of trouble now and later. I can’t seem to get though to her. She is mentally intact. Any ideas?
Get a neutral source to coax her.
Either bring in an attorney, of have a friend her age tell her about all the heartache s/he went through in probate when her spouse or parent didn’t have a will.
She’s tuning you out, so you need to get a different broadcast started.
I know she may be one of those people who think, “Once I sign these things, I may as well be dead.” However, such preparation is VITAL to those who you will leave behind.
Best of luck! +2
