Nidus uses the term Estate Planning to refer to making arrangements for after death. For example making a Will.
The term Personal Planning (Nidus’ expertise) is about making arrangements for while you are alive but you may need help in one or more of the four life areas: health care, personal care, legal matters or financial affairs.
The spotlight has traditionally been on estate planning and making a Will. But for many reasons, the spotlight is shifting to personal planning. However both are on a continuum and many of us will name the same people in all of our legal documents to ensure continuity and because they are the ones who know us the best and who we can trust to respect our wishes.
