COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. Emphysema and chronic asthmatic bronchitis are the two main conditions that make up COPD. Estate-planning is crucial for those living with a chronic condition, as they must express their preferences whether to receive long-term care at home rather than in a nursing home in the event that they become more disabled, and it is more important for one who has a chronic illness to name a power of attorney.

Estate and Financial Planning for People Living with COPD covers all of those topics plus:

  • How to write your will
  • How to determine how much life insurance your family needs
  • How to figure out whether you need a living trust
  • Learn about powers of attorney
  • When to work with a lawyer, if you need to
