End-of-Life Planning

Bench with scattered dead leaves on it Most people think end-of-life planning ends with estate planning and funeral wishes.

Comprehensive end-of-life planning includes much more than a will, a durable power of attorney and a health care proxy. It needs to include matters concerning the home, the friends, pets, funeral arrangements, the business and obituary. For example, you have a beloved pet. How old is the pet? What medicines? What food? How is its health? Contact information for the vet?

Some other questions:

  • Are you a member of a gym? Any organizations?
  • What email accounts do you have? What are the passwords?
  • What social media accounts do you have?

Think of planning this way: What questions will your spouse or children ask when you are no longer able to provide answers? Good end-of-life planning is a "love letter" you provide for those you leave behind.
