Notary called to COVID units for the many patients who don’t have final affairs in order

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Do you have a will and other end-of-life documents ready to go in case the unthinkable happens?

In the age of COVID-19, more people are finding themselves unprepared for their last wishes, even as they’re suddenly lying in a critical care ICU bed.

Adrienne Bowling with A1 Mobile Notary says time and time again, she has been called to hospitals across the mid-state, only to find shocked COVID-19 patients and equally shocked family members who are filling out wills and powers of attorney documents no one thought they’d need until decades later.

She says people need to get their end of life documents filled out now while they are healthy, but too few actually do.

“When you see people who never expected to see mom or dad in the hospital, or they’ve just been taking care of them out of the goodness of their heart and they were oblivious to the fact that they need paperwork to back me,” said Bowling.

You should consult an attorney to make sure your end of life documents are in order. Some of the documents to consider include a Last Will and Testament, Durable Power of Attorney, General Power of Attorney and a Living Will.Copyright 2020 Scripps Media, Inc.
