Headline: What is Estate and financial planning for COPD?
This book covers the question, "why a book on planning for people living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)?" COPD is one of the most common lung disease and it has a profound impact on those living with it, their families, loves ones, and caregivers. It covers; estate, financial, planning, health finances and it tells you how. Each chapter is extensively covered and gives a summary at the end of each section of chapter.
Did you know that COPD is misunderstood and that more woman than men is being diagnosed at the ages of 45-64? Most persons with COPD lose their jobs, careers, businesses and hurt financially which affects their retirement. This all needs to be considered when planning for the future of those affected by COPD.
This is a must read book when COPD is occurring. Mr. Shenkman does an excellent job of providing the tools and techniques for people and their financial advisors with this dreaded disease. It is very easy to read and a helpful resource to keep on your shelves or give to someone whom may be dealing with COPD.
Most estate planning is similar in tools and techniques needed for people and their financial advisers. This book is so easy for people to read that it will allow family members to understand how to help the COPD patient, legally and lovingly.
Nine steps are presented for estate planning and even with no health issues, the steps should be considered by all readers. Mr. Shenkman leaves no questions unanswered and all consumers will find a chapter to consider and then act upon it.
At the end of each chapter are highlights, and should be read and considered as invaluable information, some of which are Power of Attorney, HIPAA, wills, living trusts,charitable giving and organizing all of your information. These topics are covered by the author in his easy-to-read style. And if sharing his wisdom isn't enough, Mr. Schenkman is donating 100% of the royalties to the COPD foundation.
I highly recommend this book to anyone with COPD or as a gift book for those who need estate and financial planning advice
