    How do I know if my Power of Attorney will work?

    Many people think that all power of attorney documents are the same. However, recently, Pennsylvania law has changed and many important decisions that need addressed must be specifically set forth in the power of attorney document.  Some of these powers are critical, especially in the context of when a person becomes disabled and requires long term care.  The right power of attorney can literally make or break the planning options that are available.

    Will my children be responsible to pay for my long term care costs?
