Where do you keep all the contracts and agreements for the services you use? Do you have special arrangements that your family may be unaware of, or are there any appointments that you attend regularly?
From regular deliveries (meals/prescriptions), to in home services (housekeeping/hair-cutting) and spiritual support (pastoral care), there's a place to record the details in My Elderly Care.
As a resident in a retirement village, you will ‘purchase’ a right to occupy, or an occupation right agreement. The purchase is based on a capital investment and is a form of tenancy.
Retirement villages can also include residential units that are unit titles under the Unit Titles Act 2010. Intending residents are strongly encouraged to seek independent legal and financial advice to ensure they fully understand the type of retirement village obligations that they are entering into.
Life is full of twists and turns. Planning and gathering together all these jigsaw pieces now will relieve a lot of stress later. Whether you’re recovering from surgery, involved in an accident, or embarking on the one adventure every human must eventually take into the great beyond. This info will come in handy for you in every day life, your family and loved ones. By organising and sharing the location of all these things you’re helping yourself to become more efficient, engaged in your life and your family can easily take over if needed.
In-home care brings medical care and treatments right to your doorstep and is a great option if you'd like to continue to live at home but need some help with daily activities such as cooking, cleaning, bathing, dressing, using the toilet, eating, and managing medications. If you have multiple care-givers you can easily gather all the information you need together in your LifeLot account:
The majority of in-home care is non-medical. Instead of registered nurses or doctors, professional caregivers or certified nursing assistants provide the assistance that is required. It's quite common for family and friends to lend a hand as well. The goal is to support independent living, no matter the health or housing situation.
There's a lot more to life these days and LifeLot acts as your very own personal database from which the information you gather and store can be retrieved quickly and presented to you in different ways. The information that is entered in About Me will feed into many important document templates that you can create, like an updated CV, a Will or Enduring Power of Attorney.
Often the only time you seem to think about your important documents is when you need them. And, often you can't find them because you either don't have an organised and centralised system for storing your important documents and/or the last time you needed them, you simply tossed it back into the sea of papers in your home office instead of putting it back where it belonged!
There is probably some other stuff that only sits in your head and your family would love to know. LifeLot ensures important information is passed through generations. In a medical emergency, a delegate will be able to securely access an Advance Care Plan or Will, and call upon other important documents when they're most needed.
It's simple to set up, free to try, and it can make a world of difference for your family if something happens to you.
