What clients have to say about A/Z Health, Trust & Elder Law
The Thankful Journey of The P. Family
It began Feb 20, 2020 and continued during Covid 19’s challenging first year and into 2021’s unsettling lockdowns, political unrest, limited social services, financial challenges , serious life challenging decisions. Becoming a single parent and caregiver 24/7 while trying to provide a Covid 19 free safe life. Our family of three: My husband of 49 years is struggling with multiple health challenges including Alzheimer’s and needs 24 hour care. My adult son is diagnosed with profound Autism, profound hearing loss, non-verbal, epilepsy and recovering from kidney cancer robotic surgery also needs 24 hour care.
How am I coping with my present situation and planning for the future?
Challenges: My husband is incapable of making his medical decisions. I need a legal team that can guide me through an ocean of decisions. In addition to medical intervention, I need a plan to protect our assets, provide a plan for my disabled son and a life plan for my family. Memory care is expensive! Our family plan is to provide a solid financial future for our disabled son and spending our life savings on caring for my husband is not an option. From the day Mary Kay Furiasse of A/Z Health & Elder law sat down to write wills and a special needs trust we were coached by the best of the best. I can call team members or email them and rest assured you will get a timely response! The dust is finally settling and we are well on our way to a life of medical funding needs met and a financial foundation that will serve our family in the future.
Thankful: We are still in crisis and life is day by day but rest assured my favorite word for 2021 is thankful. I am thankful that my husband is being cared for by a team of wonderful staff, my son is home with me during Covid 19. The court papers are filed, my bills are paid, my finances are managed, my son and I are living in our family home. The legal challenges are managed and now I can focus on caring for my family.
For years I had thought that I didn’t need a will. I am not married and have one daughter. Suzie would inherit everything. If I couldn’t make my medical decisions for myself... she would; it was just that simple.
It was upon losing my dear friend from cancer that made me realize how important it was to have my legal papers prepared prior to something happening and not thinking everything would work out just fine. A/Z Health, thank you so much.
A/Z Health has helped me with my legal matters when my husband was so sick and passed away. I couldn’t have done it without her help. She specializes in Elder Law and has had 20 years’ experience.
Making the decision to have a will drawn up is a big step. It can be very intimidating not knowing exactly how to put your wishes into words and making sure you are conveying your true actions. We chose A/Z Health & Elder Law LLC to draw up our Living Trust. A/Z captured our exact wishes and even brought up situations that never even occurred to us. Once our Living Trust was complete they went through the document page by page to explain every aspect. We are very happy with the product and service we received from A/Z.
We have had the opportunity, and pleasure, of engaging the service at A/Z Health & Elder Law for three family members.
In each case, the thoroughness, professionalism and support exceeded our expectations. The services provided ranged from selecting an extended care facility, educating us on important areas to consider, attending meetings with care providers and acting as an advocate, to preparing all applicable legal documents, estate planning advice and after death services.
All of our interactions were provided with empathy, clarity and in alignment with our number one goal - taking the best care of our loved ones and making sure they were our priority. We live out of state from Illinois and they were always considerate of our schedule and accommodated accordingly.
Going through the challenges of helping a loved one, and families, through the aging process is not easy. There are big decisions and small decisions that need to be made and working with A/Z Elder Law helped us not only prepare for these decisions but were by our side as we made them. Working with the professionals in this firm gave us the encouragement, support and confidence we all needed to ensure we were focusing on the right things for our loved ones.
Thank you for all you and your firm have done for us. We appreciate your expertise and consideration during this stressful time!
