Children are central to successful elder care planning – specifically cooperative, trustworthy children.  Where such harmony exists, not only are parents truly blessed, but the planning has the highest chance of success. Is it possible to implement successful elder-focused planning where there is little or no cooperation among children? Yes, but with greater risk. Every family situation is different – counseling, technique, and plan design go a long way towards success in the planning (in any event) regardless of family dynamics.
