The chances that medical science will advance so much that anyone currently alive will be able to live forever are small. However, many wealthy people are planning to live a lot longer than previously thought possible.
Cheating death and becoming immortal has long been a desire for some people. Actually doing so was once thought to be impossible. However, medical science has advanced so much in the last 100 years that some people think immortality could eventually be possible.
Funding endeavors to defeat death and aging is a pet project of several Silicon Valley billionaires. However, the process of cell division and regeneration in humans would seem to make it unlikely that immortality will be achieved within our lifetimes.
What is possible is that wealthy people can expect to live a lot longer than previous generations of humans as discussed by Financial Advisor in “Want To Live Forever?”
Many wealthy people are in fact creating comprehensive health and longevity plans. Their wealth allows them to take advantage of elite health care concierge plans and the latest advancements in medical science in the hopes of prolonging their lives.
The advancements the wealthy are funding will most likely trickle down to those less wealthy eventually, making it so everyone lives much longer. However, as actually becoming immortal is so far off for humans, no one should think they can prolong their lives for so long that they do not need to get an estate plan.
We all are going to pass away, and we should all still plan for what happens when we do.

I heard Cindy’s presentation at a Senior Luncheon at my church, and was very impressed. She helped my daughter and me understand many aspects of elder law. Josh has also been very helpful in my planning to enter an independent living situation . I have told many friends about them.
The very best elder law attorney and staff anyone could ever ask for! I have referred a number of clients to Cindy and she never disappoints. She is kind, caring, and extremely thorough in making sure everything is completed as it should be. I highly recommend Cindy for anyone needing lawyer services; she truly goes above and beyond for every client she helps and has had a huge impact in so many peoples’ lives. Thank you, Cindy and staff, for everything that you do- I’m so glad to know you!
Cindy and the Nelson Elder Care Law team are trustworthy and helpful. They are the experts in elder care law. At Leaf Cremation, we entrust our families to the care of the Nelson team when their services are needed.
Josh Nelson, and his staff, have been amazingly helpful to our family. The ins and outs of nursing homes, the rules and regulations that govern Medicare and Medicaid are daunting and the folks at Nelson Elder Care Law have been informative, responsive, and above all, empathetic. I cannot emphasize enough how their service has taken a weight off of our shoulders especially during a world pandemic that has targeted nursing homes across our country. I highly recommend retaining Josh and his firm!
I had a simple legal question to them that I needed answered and they very helpful in giving me the information I needed. I highly recommend them and will reach out to them if I need more advice or assistance. Thank you for taking your time to just answer a couple of questions I had!
