There can be several pieces to Estate Planning.
Obviously the first piece is a Will.
But you might want to set up a Trust. A Trust can be the major piece of your overall estate planning package or it can be a smaller tool to prepare for elder care expenses such as nursing. See our page on Trusts for more information.
Once you have a Will, you should also prepare a Living Will to express your wishes for end-of-life medical treatment. See our page on End of Life Issues to learn about other directives you should have in place.
