"I'm going to leave everything in such a mess for my family.” This thought flashed through my head as I was being airlifted to Sydney, by The Royal Flying Doctors of Australia.
I was near death and my body was shutting down. I panicked...
"My family won't know where to start looking or how to access what they'll need."

We always think we have time....tomorrow! Yet, life can change suddenly and unexpectedly. We hope for the best, but should always plan for the worst. If disaster strikes, we should have records of everything. Not only documents and certificates, but physical things and momentos too.

Last Will and Testament
This legal document spells out your wishes for when you die. It outlines who you want to get your assets after you’re gone and how you want your property managed. It allows you to name an executor to carry out your wishes.
Advance Care Directive
An advance care directive is a legal document that outlines prospective actions if you are no longer able to make decisions yourself due to illness or incapacity. This allows you to decide in advance what treatments and methods you approve of for your medical care.
Health Care Proxy
A health care proxy is a legal document in which you name an agent to make medical decisions on your behalf. If you are incapable of making decisions for yourself your proxy will do so. It’s important to choose someone who understands your decisions. They must be willing to put your interests first.
Power of Attorney
An enduring power of attorney is a legal document that allows you to name someone to act on your behalf in legal and financial matters. This allows the person of your choosing to sign and write checks. They can also make bank transactions when you can’t make them yourself.
An enduring guardian is someone you appoint to make decisions about your lifestyle, health care, and personal circumstances. This person makes only these limited decisions if you can’t make those decisions for yourself. It’s important to have an enduring guardian in place should you get in an accident or become sick.
Estate planning is the process of outlining what you want to happen to your assets after you die. These documents will help in managing and distributing according to your wishes. If you don’t plan ahead, you could create a stressful situation for your family.
