Four-things-transparentDr. Ira Byock, an international leader in palliative care, defines the four things that matter most as – “Please forgive me,” “I forgive you,” “Thank you,” and “I love you”.  These sentiments can be difficult to express for many of us.  When we face our own mortality, the fears that prevent us from expressing feelings are easily swept away.  We encourage you to look at your mortality, define your wishes and share them with your loved ones.  It’s healthy for you and can make the decisions for loved ones so much easier.

At Legacy Foundry, we want to help you ensure those wishes are understood by loved ones and medical providers.  We will help you fill in the necessary documentation like advance directives (living will), MOST forms, or medical power of attorney, then build a community around your wishes.  Once the mechanics are complete, you can start building your legacy.  What wisdom do you want to pass down to your loved ones?  How would you like to contribute back to society?  Get the family involved, pick those favorite memories that you want those important to you to keep close when you’re no longer around.

We take a four step approach.

Step 1:  Fill in those advance care planning docs and vault them

  • Remove any chance of not having your wishes known by filling in these simple docs
  • Advance directive, also known as advance health directive or living will
  • MOST form or POLST form depending on where you are
  • DNR or do no resuscitate order
  • Medical power of attorney or medical durable power of attorney
  • Once these are taken care of, vault and update them when necessary

Step 2: Invite family members and providers to access this information

  • Your living will is meaningless if no one knows about it
  • Invite the people that matter, and only those people, to share this information
  • This is a secure site where only the people you give permission can view your advance care planning documentation
  • You can also decide to share only certain information with certain people.  Not everyone needs to know who your medical POA is unless you decide they should.
  • Use video for your advance care directives so family can go ‘back to the tape’ if there is ever a misunderstanding
  • Ease the pain by keeping family from having to make these difficult decisions

Step 3: Once advance care planning is done, focus on your legacy!

  • Build and contribute to your family history
  • Decide what information you want to pass down to your descendants
  • Get the kids and grand kids involved in recording their favorite memories

Step 4: Prepare your family for when you’re no longer around

  • You will be missed deeply
  • Have input on how your family remembers you
  • Personalize a legacy box or memory box with favorite gems for each loved one
  • Or have a family curator help you build a lasting family video to remember you by
