We often hear the term ‘advance directive,’ but not many of us really know what it is and what it does. There can be a lot of confusion about what they are and how they relate to wills, trusts, power of attorney and other legal documents that are written up to carry out our wishes when we are no longer able. Home health care and assisted living facilities often require such documents as part of the agreement for services. These requirements may become more widespread as people in Beverly Beach and Holly Hill age.
Your Senior Link has released a wonderful podcast on our website or through iTunes, that you can listen to that goes a long way in clearing up much of the mystery and confusion about advanced directives and how they fit in with our last wish instructions. This first of many podcasts from Your Senior Link features Brenda O’Donnell as she talks with Scott Selis and Sheila McKay Vaughn. Be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss any of our future podcasts. Your Senior Link is dedicated to making getting older a lot easier than it used to be by providing excellent information to all who need it.
