I need to speak to someone familiar with the options and processes about durable Powers of Attorney, Living Trusts, the Affordable Care Act, Veterans' Administration Benefits, COBRA, Medicare, etc. I have ADHD, a lifelong struggle with depression and anxiety, and I just don't speak bureaucrat-ese. So telling me to read all the stuff is just not going to happen.
I need to give our basic profile to someone who gets all that, or even just most of it, so I can make the right decisions to protect my husband and myself. I just singlehandedly won us a VA re-fi, and would have it, if he hadn't gotten fired at the eleventh hour. So I know I can handle things. I just need someone to speak plain English to me. Or at least translate Bureaucracy-speak. I don't retain specialized vocabulary very well. I also don't have any native sense of doing things done in the right order so that I don't shoot myself in the foot. For example: Durable Power of Attorney and living trust come BEFORE dementia diagnosis, I just found out, before I almost made my own situation worse. Thank you. I'm patient and I have a sense of humor. Thank you so much for any response.
. I do better sitting with someone who explains and shows me how to do it. I can then use the written stuff to reference.
All this healthcare stuff is very confusing. Don't think you r the only one who doesn't understand it all.
