Helping you get your affairs in order, sooner than later.
Personal approach to what advance care planning in BC means for you.
Embracing the finality of life can improve your outlook on living.
Milestones in life such as buying a home, having children or entering retirement present good reasons to get our affairs in order. Sometimes we are prompted to start thinking of getting our affairs in order when someone we know has died or when medical professionals suggest that we need to consider doing so. We all know that it is easiest to do our life planning sooner than later, but it can be difficult to know where to begin.
Written for British Columbians, the comprehensive Orderly Affairs Guide will help you get your affairs in order by providing enough information and structure about each task that will motivate you to complete the required work. You will save countless hours searching for this kind of information on your own. In addition, the Guide is a place to keep your personal documents that will save your estate time and money by allowing your designated representatives to easily find the necessary information and fulfill their responsibilities. It is also a great tool to guide you through the various matters you will need to identify when preparing or revising your Will. The Guide will limit the chaos and confusion for those you leave behind and will also be a helpful resource for organizing your affairs well in advance of that reality!
Regardless of our health or age, we all need to be empowered with information about our healthcare options in preparation for a time when we may not be capable of making our own decisions. Designating a legal representative to act on our behalf in these circumstances has specific requirements in BC. This legal representative is NOT our power of attorney, as commonly misunderstood. You want to ensure that this representative has a thorough understanding of your values, beliefs, and wishes when they take on this responsibility. Orderly Affairs provides a unique approach for your personal Advance Care Planning that will explain, in a step-by-step format, what is required in BC. We also follow up with you and provide you with 1:1 support a week later, as we want to ensure that you get this important work done.
