I’ve reached a point in my life when I need to look to the future and that future, at some point, involves death. I’m absolutely fine, I feel well, I still have some vim left in me but my bloods are slowly deteriorating, I have fewer years to come than I have lived, retirement and diabetes beckon.
I wrote a will a long time ago. I now have grandchildren that need to be considered. What can I do now so that my loved ones don’t end up paying inheritance tax? Is it best to live wild while I can and let frugality hang itself? Who is going to look after me if I become less able, say my kidneys fail and I need dialysis? Should I think about enduring power of attorney so there are no problems if I lose my mind? What about arranging a DNARCPR to prevent some well meaning professionals from attempting a heroic, futile rescue? What about that nice place in Switzerland? Are they booked up well in advance? Is it wise to reserve a room now before they get full?
Has anyone on The Afterword got their affairs neatly in order? Any tips?
