WHAT, ME WORRY?


 

By: J. Norman Stark, ATTORNEY, ARCHITECT EMERITUS (OH) A.I.A., N.C.A.R.B.

Perennials, those over 60, should recall the 1960’s beginning and craze of Mad Magazine, its comic jabs and  satire about almost everything, and the iconic portrait of the smiling youth.  The in-print cover creation of the mythical Alfred E. Neuman and the grinning youth are explained. *

* In 1954, Mad Magazine artist Harvey Kurtzman, positioned the image on the cover of Mad Magazine #30 in December, 1956, with the “What, Me Worry” catch phrase, as the trademark and cover-boy for Mad magazine.

The author cautions, however, that the “What, Me Worry? “ carefree, careless phrase conceals the real agenda of all Perennials – the Elderly, their valid concerns and their true needs.  What are the serious legal concerns of the Elderly and all others approaching seniority now,  soon, or sooner?   These are among their major concerns, in no particular order of preference:

  • Medical Care, Health Care
  • Housing
  • Assisted Living, Activity
  • Incapacity Planning (Illness, Falls, Diseases, etc.)
  • Long Term Care, Disease, Dementia,
  • Elder Abuse Protection
  • Asset Protection, Trusts, Wills
  • Employment
  • Business, Transition
  • Financial and Succession Planning
  • Education
  • Estate Planning
  • Medicare, Medicaid Planning
  • Probate, Trust Administration
  • Alcohol, Drug & Substance Abuse
  • Death Planning, Internment, Memorials
  • Survivor Care, Heirs, Beneficiaries

Our office and our legal services are premised upon actual maturity and learned experience.  We are prepared to respond, meet and assist inquiries with affordable, confidential consultation about Elder Care and Senior concerns.  Timely  planning can eliminate worry, by beginning today, since “tomorrow” is not a day of the week!
