Grosse Pointe Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center finds that the following are typical financial considerations:

  • Income tax filings
  • Statements and documents for assets including:
    • life insurance policies
    • bank accounts
    • investment accounts
    • real estate titles and mortgages

Legal documents

The legal authority to act on a loved one's behalf is needed when the individual is temporarily or permanently unable to make their own decisions. At Grosse Pointe Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, we understand that this an extra responsibility for you. We recommend you consult with a trusted legal professional.
