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.

“On the threshold of retirement, we finally decided to quit thinking we could self-prepare the requisite documents. We had previously had only a very simple will. We needed the necessary legal (including updated will) & health care docs but didn’t want to deal with the time & complication of legalese. Cindy made the process relatively painless. She took the time to explain and answer questions without trying to upsell services. We were done in 2 meetings plus the reading of emailed drafts. In addition to preparing the documents, Nelson Eldercare will be there when our adult children need advice on executing the plans we’ve put in place.So glad it’s behind us and would recommend Cindy and her helpful staff.”
Cindy and her company treat their clients like family. Nelson’s offers clear, direct, and honest guidance in planning for your families security and future. No one wants to actively sit down and make these decisions, but Nelson’s makes this process seamless. I was so impressed with their willingness to answer all questions big or small. So glad I made the decision have them help my mom and dad and now me. You can’t go wrong with Nelson’s Elder Care Law.
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!
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.
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.
