Representation Agreements – Planning for the Future and End-of-Life Care
Are you prepared for end-of-life? For incapacity? For your future? Learn the steps needed to plan your future from a volunteer trained by Nidus Personal Planning Resource Centre! A Will is not enough. There are other legal documents that are needed to cover your health care wishes and financial affairs in case you are incapacitated due to illness or accident.
