It is important that you have a chance to put your affairs in order. This may include a visit from a legal representative or person who has been officially nominated as your power of attorney.

Having close family and friends near if you wish. You may want to leave special messages for family and friends who cannot be with you.

Who would you want to give a special thank you to if you knew you would not see them again?

Who would you ask to care for your pets?

Any special arrangements you would like at your funeral?

If you have made a will, make sure your family and any power of attorney know where to find important documents.

Please see the My Power of Attorney website for more information on how to appoint someone with power of attorney.
