Caregiver Family Checklist

  • The most loving gift a person can give to one’s family is to put your affairs in order before a disaster or medical emergency. To assist in providing that gift, Today’s Caregiver has compiled the following list. The information and documents you should have prepared:
  1. All bank accounts, account numbers and types of accounts and the location of banks.
  2. Insurance Company, policy number, beneficiary as stated on the policies and type of insurance (health, life, long term care, automobile, etc).
  3. Deed and titles to ALL property.
  4. Loan/lien information, who holds them and if there are any death provisions.
  5. Social Security and Medicare numbers.
  6. Military history, affiliations and papers (including discharge papers).
  7. Up-to-date will in a safe place (inform family where the Will is located).
  8. Living Will or other Advanced Directive appropriate to your state of residence.
  9. Durable Power of Attorney.
  10. Instructions for funeral services and burial (if arrangements have been secured, name and location of funeral home.)
