I recently ran across an article called “13+ things funeral directors won’t tell you.”
I thought it was worthwhile to share because it goes hand in hand with what we discuss with our clients when drafting their Advance Health Care Directive. While the main purpose of an Advance Health Care Directive is to notify your agent and doctor of your wishes should you be unable to make your health care decisions, it also includes a section regarding your wishes after your death. As hard as it may be for many of us to think about making those decisions during our life, imagine how much more difficult it would be for our loved ones to make those decisions right after our death, and as this article points out possibly very expensive too. Take time to communicate to your loved ones what your wishes would be and make it easy for them to carry out by putting in writing.
An Advance Health Care Directive is a document included in our Estate Planning Portfolio. Schedule your complimentary thirty minute consultation with one of our attorneys to discuss the estate plan for your personal situation by visiting our website: http://falkandcornell.com/contact-us/ .
