At a birthday party recently, I chatted with a former fireman, now an arson investigator. When we talked about his days of breaking down doors to rescue trapped people, he mentioned that when it was safe he and his fellow firefighters would search the house for helpful clues about the people they were rescuing. They’d check medicine cabinets to see what prescriptions were current, they’d look in refrigerators to see if other medications were stored there. Their goal was to gather as much current information as possible to assist in the recovery of the injured or incapacitated tenant.
I asked if he ever felt he found all the information he needed. He grinned and said, “Just once.”
“We entered the house and were amazed at what we found. On the coffee table in the living room there was a laminated piece of paper, signed and dated in a stand no less, that listed the owner’s allergies, medications, and the names, relationships and telephone numbers of who should be contacted. We knew the name of the lady’s doctor, her favorite hospital, her children and friends.
We then discovered this same paper in every room of the house. Bless this gal, she had it all figured out and we were able to help her better than anyone would have believed.”
His eyes glowed recounting that story and once again I realized how a bit of organization had helped a woman make not just her own life better, but it had made a guy who routinely faced pretty awful situations feel that he had truly been able to help someone in the best way possible.
Now it is Truly Easy to “Put Life in Order and Put Worry Away.”
We are thrilled to announce that we’ve truly made it easy for you to put life in order and put worry away with the publication of the Texas edition of our new workbook. The workbook is now available for sale on our website and will provide one easy location where you can write down all the information you want your family, friends or doctors to have should you be involved in an accident or unable to speak for yourself.
We’ve provided contact lists, a wallet card, advance directive questionnaires, valid Do Not Resuscitate (DNR) and Organ Donation forms as well as helpful lists that tell you what to do in the first 24 hours after someone dies.
While we don’t provide a form for a will (although filling this out will probably make getting one much easier) we have tried, however, to provide everything else you may need to help communicate your wishes and desires should you be hospitalized or unable to speak.
