It may be grim but everyone age 18 and older should fill out an Advanced Directive, documenting your wishes in regards to medical care and life-sustaining treatments. Anyone over 18 should also express to a loved one their desires for after death care, a burial … cremation … funeral … or no ceremony. We all need someone in our life that is aware of our desires; we never know what our future holds. We could lose capacity and be in need of a guardian or a conservatorship. It is important to identify those whom you would like to appoint, share with them your wishes and make it legal when necessary.
Myatt & Bell, P.C. is passionate about ensuring that a person's wishes are honored when they lose capacity someday. During the seminar, we will discuss living trust, guardianship and conservatorship in detail. The program will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 13 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and is presented by John Boylston and Samatha Robell. There is no cost for the class, and to register for this class please visit the ACC's website at http://www.ci.oswego.or.us/acc/acc-virtual-presentations.
