We recently had an experience with a relative in which we didn’t know what their end-of-life wishes were. We weren’t sure if they had an advanced directive or power of attorney, or even who their doctor was or what insurance they had. Oy vey!
We all need to protect ourselves and our families by having these tools in place.
In April we released the results of a national survey conducted by DHM Research, a respected leader in opinion research, which found that only 26% of Americans have wills, 15% have powers of attorney, 19% have advanced directives and 13% have life plans.
Let’s change that.
Here’s a free end-of-life planning tool called Cake that enables you––for you or for someone you love––to put together a plan for end of life, and to have all your key documents securely in one place.
Cake helps you create, store, and share access to important end-of-life documents with your friends and family. A personalized checklist guides you through simple steps to plan your healthcare, financial, funeral and legacy decisions.
For years, we’ve been a fan of GYST.com in Seattle, another end-of-life planning website, which was recently acquired by Cake.
Having a life plan helps you realize your hopes and dreams while you’re here on this planet, a financial plan enables you to realize your goals, and an end-of-life plan provides your family with crucial information for when you exit.These tools will make your life—and the lives of your loved ones—all the better.
