EldercareThere are so many moments when you think about what you want for your final years in life. It’s never too late and never too early to prepare yourself and those around you for your final wishes.

This article provides an outline of the documents you should gather and distribute amongst your trusted Care Advocates. This outline is also something to help you prepare for your final years to help ensure peace of mind.

What are Care Advocates?

Your Care Advocate represents your interests. This person could be a caregiver, a child, a friend, an attorney or trusted advisor. These individuals can be vital when making caregiver decisions, arranging funding for services, arranging services or coordinating care. These individuals may also be responsibility for your power of attorney. Remember to choose those whom you trust as some of your information is personal and financially sensitive.

Other Important Issues



It is always best to be well prepared for the end of your journey on earth, it helps ease the burden of family, friends and helps you get the best care for yourself with little misinterpretation to your final wishes and desires.
