From preparation while the parent is still living through compassionately helping them empty the family home, The Estate LadyŽ gives invaluable tips on negotiating the inevitable disputes, avoiding exploitation from scam artists, and eventually closing the chapter of their lives in a way that preserves relationships and maximizes value of assets.
