Ask the Senior Care Expert | What Legal Documents Do I Need to Have in Place as I Age?

This is a question not asked often enough. None of us likes to think about aging. We don’t like to think about getting sick and not being able to make decisions about our health or finances.

The Society of Humane Friends of Georgia

The Society of Humane Friends of Georgia is an animal rescue group located in Lawrenceville which works to save cats and dogs from the streets and euthanizing shelters.  Kay Young, a member of the society, describes the group as: “A 501 C3 group of loving volunteers headed by Dennis Kronenfeld and Chandler Riddett dedicated to helping abandoned and abused animals in the state of Georgia.”  

Piecing Families Back Together

Far too often, headlines are showing stories about children who live in homes that are too broken for them to be considered safe, and are consequentially removed from their house and their families. In March of 2017, a total of 604 children under the age of eighteen were living in foster homes in Gwinnett County alone. The conditions that lead children to be placed into the foster care system are unsafe, neglectful, and in some cases, abusive.

Serial Killers

People see when a serial killer is on the loose, they jump immediately to disgust and saying that this person is crazy and how they must have had a bad childhood. The truth is no one knows why the killers do this until they’re caught. Even then its sometimes a mystery as to how a person could be able to kill so many other people.

Sister-Sister

My best friend is my identical twin sister, Malia. I like being a twin because I always have someone to talk to who understands exactly how I feel. My mom always says I have a built in best friend.
