TIP 1 Mother’s Day
According to History.com, there are more phone calls on Mother’s day than any other day of the year (spike of 37%). Is a phone call really what Mom needs though?
In some cases, yes. However, caring for an aging parent also means taking time to acknowledge the level of care they need and deciding whether or not additional help is required. It is an admirable job to be a caregiver, but often can be overwhelming, especially if a person already has a different full-time position. You don’t have to go it alone – click here to learn more.
Let us celebrate our mothers and all the support they have provided throughout our lives. Thank you!!! Happy Mother’s Day everyone!

TIP 4 “Aid in Dying”
New Jersey has become the eighth state to permit people with a terminal diagnosis to end their own lives using a prescription from a doctor with the recently signed “Aid in Dying”.
Facing death is extremely difficult, which is one of the reasons the majority of Americans avoid estate planning and don’t have a will. Our trust professionals are compassionate, and we are aware of the pain of loss. We work with grieving families to ease the burden of financial management during periods of incapacity or the ultimately needed wealth transfer. We hope that not only families in the unfortunate situation to face the need of “Aid in Dying” but all families with complicated estates take into account those they will eventually leave behind.
