Due to the fact that my father has never once in his life handled any financial responsibilities, I went ahead and drafted a Will, Revocable living trust and a DPOA along with documents explaining them so that he would understand. The reason I did this is that my mother and him got divorced in 2000, and the only will he has leaves everything to her. I drafted this in January, and he still has not even read through it, always making excuses like he doesn't understand it, I even offered to go over it with him, but he says he isn't in the mood every time.
I tried to explain to him he needs it done as I am the one taking care of him and no other family lives nearby so if he ends up in the hospital then Medicare will be making the decision to pull the plug and the family will not have any say.
Along with this, I have tried to tell him that otherwise everything has to go through probate, that is when he cuts me off and will not discuss it.
All I need is his agreement, I can print the final documents, and then a notary is willing to come to finish them. He prefers to spend his time on facebook though.
