Honoring a Client’s Legacy of Love and Care

I really like many of my clients. Last week, I heard the sad but expected news that a client had passed away after over 10 years in care. When we met, she had suffered numerous medical issues resulting in her being bedridden for the rest of her life. Her husband and sons were devoted to her.

Her husband also suffered, and he too went into care; they were together in skilled care for many years in the same facility. He truly loved her.

Throughout the entire time, over 10 years, her sons visited her. They are truly devastated by the loss. It was my privilege to first help her qualify for Medi-Cal and then to help both of them qualify. I am grateful that there are assets left for the sons who cared for their mom and that the State won’t get anything when they seek to recover for the Medi-Cal used to pay for her care. Her husband and she worked hard for their money and paid taxes; those taxes paid for her care. No one chooses to live in a nursing home.

My client was fortunate. She had a husband and sons who loved her, visited her, and did their best to make sure she got good care. It is clients like these who make what I do so rewarding.
