We love our families but caring for an elderly loved one can cause stress for those taking on the role. What pertinent information should we consider? Hopefully, the following will help.
Make sure that all your elderly loved one's legal matters are in line. This will help you take care of your loved one, especially if they become unable to make decisions for themselves. Once you have all your elderly loved one's legal paperwork together, place the paperwork in a safe deposit box so that it remains safe. Legal documents should be prepared before your loved one is too sick to make decisions for themselves.
What documents might you need?
- Power of Attorney - Legal POA, Medical POA, Banking POA
- Living Will/Do Not Resuscitate Order
- Out-of-Hospital Do Not Resuscitate
