Please after a couple of things I have seen members go thru and from what I am going thru right now with my step dad DO have all your eggs in a basket ..ducks in a row .ect
KNOW who the Power of attorney is
Know if there is a DNR...........( Do not Resuciatate) order on KARDEX and Chart
Know the loved ones final wishes right to the very end .......
Know where and if there is a will
** Make sure ALL documentation is legal ,binding and you have a good attorney ..
My dad was not supposed to be on life support ...his ONLY biological daughter ( I am not ) has gone and put him on it
I have looked after this man my father and for more than 10 yrs my Mom ( prior to her passing just over 2 yrs ago) until I was stricken with Pneumonia and had to place him in a hospital for his own protection and safety SO I thought
I am now fighting with her and I have lawyers helping me BUT this is all because here I am considered less of a daughter as I DO not have his blood running thru my veins........
JUST MY TOTAL HEART ........
Please I implore you .....there are those that WILL take advantage of your loved ones especially IF there is money estate involved .I am not trying to be rude not hurtful
Just a few words of advice from someone living a nightmare.....and regretting ever having let him out of my home .......and NOT making sure all my Ducks were in a LEGAL and BINDING row
Hurting so bad for Dad.....
