Estate Planning, Wills and Power of Attorney
To avoid unnecessary expenses, delays, and possible court actions, everyone should have a Will and a Power of Attorney. Your Will allows you to specify who you want to benefit from your estate. A Power of Attorney appoints a trusted person to take over your affairs when it is necessary. This is particularly important if you become incapacitated, or if you just need some help with your affairs.
While a Power of Attorney is used for financial and legal matters, a Representation Agreement is used for health care and personal care matters. There are two types: Standard, which covers routine financial and health care decisions, and Enhanced, which provides broader powers for health care only, including end of life decision making.Read More

Pre-Arranged Funeral Arrangements
We encourage and assist with making plans for memorial services up to and including pre-prepared obituaries and memorial pamphlets. This gives you the final say in what is said or written about you after you are gone.
Health Care and Personal Advocacy
We find that people who have to fend for themselves, especially when they are ill or in crisis, can fall between the cracks in our overworked system. We will set up and co-ordinate your medical appointments, including care assessments, and Veterans Affairs. We will make arrangements for transportation to and from your appointments if you are unable to drive. If you have trouble hearing or communicating with the Doctor, we will send a companion with you to record what is said.
We will keep a record of your medications, monitor use and ensure refills reach you on time.
When a child is traveling with one parent or another adult out of the country, only the parent or parents who are NOT traveling with the child need to sign a letter of consent (in front of the Notary). If the child is traveling with an organized group (such as a sports team), both parents or parent who has sole custody needs to sign.
If your group is local, call us to arrange for a group signing, which we can offer at a significantly reduced rate.
The adult signing must produce government issued photo identification.
