My brother was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. He's 63 and retired at the end of July 2014. He has a small pension and health insurance from the State of KY, and began drawing Social Security early. There were no serious health issues until the brain tumor was discovered. He's always be a very secretive guy so no one really knows about his financial condition, assets, liabilities, etc. Because of his incapacity we are not sure how to pay pay his bills, etc. and how to provide for his likely long-term care. My sister and I are seeking to learn how best to approach this problem. She has been through this issue 5 times previously with other family members and, quite frankly, is growing weary of planning funerals and providing daily care. Where do we begin?
