After We're Gone


After We're Gone

A Christian perspective on estate and life planning for families that include a dependent member with a disability

By Duane Ruth-Heffelbower. Revised edition, MennoMedia: 2011.

Caring for an adult who is dependent due to a significant disability is a major responsibility. Making provisions for that person's physical, emotional, and financial well-being after the death of the caregiver can be complex and confusing. After We're Gone introduces options and resources for the Christian family and faith community as they interact with the legal system to make provisions for the ongoing care of loved ones with disabilities. 
"This book is an extended hand, reaching out to those who are worried or frustrated to offer encouragement, support, and hope."
