DON’T JUST SIGN THAT CONTRACT!
It seems that almost every day we are confronted with the need to sign some sort of agreement or click through some sort of acceptance process. Each time you download an app you are required to. Accepting an airline or cruise boarding pass is often also the contract. We cannot get away from them. They are a part of our everyday life.
But, that doesn’t mean we should blindly sign agreements, especially long-term care agreements. Often we hear from client or family members about signing entrance agreements for long term care facilities – after they’ve signed. The typical story is that an employee took information, printed out a set of documents, marked them up a little, and highlighted where the person should sign. The person asked some questions and then signed without reading even one line.
