Are You Prepared?
No one ever plans to be sick or disabled. But a sudden fall can change it all. Planning for the “just in case” can make a huge difference in an emergency. Planning involves having all your important papers and documents in one place and telling a trusted family member or friend where they are. Important papers are different for everyone, but in general they are:
Personal records: Medications, Birth Certificate, Social Security Number.
Financial records: Insurance Information, Medicare, Mortgages & Debts and how they are paid, Investment Income, Car Title & Registration.
Legal documents: Wills, Trusts, Advance Directives and Durable Power of Attorney.
When your affairs are in order you are still in control in an emergency.
