Do You Know Where…?
The American Bar Association (ABA) has a helpful website on laws and aging. There are often things that seniors and families overlook. The ABA site can advise how to get one's house in order. Why is this so important? Well, there are times when an older person has to apply for particular products or support services. They may need financial assistance or legal advice on how to do a thing.
Legal paperwork is often required to trigger a procedure or to authorize an action. This is why you need to have all essential files and documents to hand. Comfort Keepers home care services can help.
Could you, for example, put your hands on the following items if asked?
- Birth certificate, marriage license, divorce papers
- Property and mortgage documents
- Social security records
- Power of Attorney (POA) document
- Funeral pre-arrangements
- Will and trust documents
- Health & life insurance policy numbers
- Health files, including details of medical history, ongoing treatments, etc.
- All financial and assets papers
We have seen worried families trying to find essential documents at the last minute. Sometimes they're misplaced, other times lost. The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way.
