“One Size Truly Doesn’t Fit All When it Comes to Estate Planning” x

Different people have different estate planning needs and goals, which may include: x Providing for minor children but distributing

assets to them at various stages of life. x Transitioning a business upon death or disability. x Providing for management of assets for children

or other family members with special needs. x Elder law planning for an ill or elder spouse. x Minimizing Massachusetts estate taxes. x

At Estate Planning and Protection Law, P.C., we thoroughly review client goals and help you to understand the estate planning impacts of your decisions. We provide advice and estate planning documents that reflect what you want.

x

Using online legal software or generalized “production line” documents is no substitute for a thorough review and analysis to provide a customized plan that truly reflects what you desire. Call today to discuss an estate plan that is not mass produced but tailored to your personal situation and goals.

TELL-TALE SIGN

S

ome older people have a grey ring at the outer edge of their corneas, called a “corneal arcus,” that usually develops symmetrically but may begin as an incomplete ring. It can be yellow, white, or gray in color and is composed of lipids (fats) that have infiltrated the cornea. While this cloudy ring at the periphery of the cornea does not generally affect vision, it may be indicative of raised cholesterol levels. In fact, about half of those with this gray band on the outer edge of their corneas do have high cholesterol, but only a blood test can confirm this diagnosis. When detected, therefore, a referral to a physician for a cholesterol blood test is recommended. P.S. Corneal arcus is present at birth but eventually fades.

Seniors

on the Move

GIVE SHINGLES A SHOT If you had chicken pox as a child, you should know that the same virus that gave you chicken pox also causes “shingles” (varicella zoster virus). While the virus remains dormant in the body after having had chicken pox, it can reactivate and migrate along a nerve path to the skin’s surface, causing severe burning or shooting pain, tingling, and itching that typically concentrates on one side of the body (usually on the chest or back). After one to two days, blisters may form in a band or strip pattern that persists for up to two weeks. Other symptoms include fever, headaches, and a general feeling of sickness. To avert shingles, seniors are advised to get the herpes zoster vaccine. We hope you found this topic to be both interesting and informative. At NOTRE DAME LONG TERM CARE CENTER, we understand the importance of health care for our seniors. We encourage them to get appropriate medical treatment whenever necessary, and we provide transportation to and from medical appointments upon request. To learn more about us, contact us today at (508) 852-3011. We will arrange an initial, conÀdential meeting and tour of our senior community at 559 Plantation Street. Learn how we earned our superior reputation! P.S. The risk of shingles increases with age, particularly among those with weakened immune systems.

A

nother New England autumn is slipping in, bringing cool, crisp air and fiery brilliance to the leaves again. It’s charming, but we have a love/hate affair with this season… Today’s breezy beauty gives way to raking leaves, moving things inside and making home repairs needed to withstand winter. Intense wind, bone-chilling temperatures and precipitation make for high heating costs, chopping ice and shoveling snow, surviving power outages and treacherous driving conditions with the possibility of isolation at home that results. It’s not a pretty picture. You can color your world rosy instead of facing those chores, costs and concerns if you put yourself in a place created to take those worries away. Imagine no yard work, leaf or snow removal (not even digging out your car), home repairs or mainte-

nance or escalating heating costs. Imagine having a spacious, private home, walking to the store (or grabbing a free shuttle door-to-door), enjoying a fitness center every day, dining at a fine restaurant each night, meeting new people and choosing from among different social events or trips – while pursuing what you already love to do and spending time with family and friends – regardless of the weather. We’re suggesting The Willows at Westborough, surprisingly affordable alternative to stress and strain. Call Sherry and Susan at 508-366-4730, take a tour and see why our residents 60 and better live life in the pink. The Willows at Westborough, celebrating 25 years, is part of family owned and operated SALMON Health and Retirement, celebrating six decades.
