Food For Your Medical Well Being

This is a touchy subject, Living Will and Medical Durable Power of Attorney are you prepared for an emergency when it comes to your health? I would say that 1 in 5 people in this country today do not have a medical durable power of attorney or living will, which is what I'm going to touch on today.
First, go to your google search engine and type your state example here you will find for you state specific all the information and forms *free* to print out right there at your desk. This is very important if you are hospitalized or in an accident, it gives the medical staff your information of what you want in case there is a chance you will not recover. Don't please don't put the burden of that decision on your family without discussing it and letting the one person you choose to make those decisions for you.
Yes, it takes time to get this information in order, but what a relief it is once it's completed, a weight is lifted.
I also suggest that your will is updated this is so important for those that have substantial assets again, this is your directive as to how you want your estate divided up, and please don't forget the family pets, they are often forgotten, and often they are left at animal shelters, which is heart breaking, so get busy and get it done. I know, this is very time consuming but it needs to be done.
Last but not least, don't forget when doing your Will to pick someone you trust and has agreed to be the Administrator of the Will, one who will be fair and not in the middle.
I have just spent the best part of two weeks completing the above and that included renewing our passports, which again is now necessary for travel in Canada, Mexico and parts of the Bahamas.
It's a lot of work, but you all know your information just sit down and get it done, it's Spring and this is the time of year to get organized. Just one more little thingy, FYI, when you renew your drivers licence you will now need to provide your birth certificate as proof of identity. When they take your picture it's now done with (Facial Recondition) it will take 10 days after completing the paper work and it's approved to receive it, this is all now thought Homeland Security.
Shewwwwwwwww that's a lot of information thrown out there all at once, it's important to me that you have the tools for a organized life and future.
Read on, I have more information lol
