Unfortunately, so often, when crisis hits, families become paralyzed with fear and dread. Emergency situations are that much more scary when we don’t anticipate or plan properly. In terms of taking charge, adult children are often overwhelmed when they don’t know where to find critical and essential documents. Often, they need these in order to make decisions regarding care for their elderly parents. Moreover, they feel handcuffed by not having access to important assets or documents they need. Fortunately, it is never too early to start that ‘just in case’ file. As such, our Essential Documents Checklist would be ideal.
Starting to Organize
There is no time like the present to start organizing. Often the burden of this falls on the adult children to assemble the essential information for their elderly parents. Whether we be seniors, caregivers or potential caregivers, it is essential to organize those all important documents and bits of information. Getting all the t’s crossed and i’s dotted is much easier with this checklist.
