Adventures of an Urban Nomad

Something you don't want to think about

Thursday, November 15, 2012

A friend of mine, Carole Sandberg, recently lost her husband after many years of happy marriage. As a result of her experiences at the time, she discovered a hole in the type of books to help deal with it. Consequently, she's written a book to fill that hole. While moving and sensitive it's real focus is on how to deal with the practicalities. 


Here's what Carole says about it.... 

SOMETHING TILL NOW YOU HAVEN'T WANTED TO THINK ABOUT LET ALONE DO ANYTHING ABOUT! OK HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO DO SOMETHING MEANINGFUL NOW, WHILST YOU CAN, THAT WILL MAKE AN EXTRAORDINARY, THOUGHTFUL DIFFERENCE TO THOSE CLOSE TO YOU, DOWN THE TRACK. 

Sadly, death is an inevitable part of life- yet what we can do now is make it easier for those who will be left behind to deal with everything when the times comes that you are not there to deal with it yourself or conversely to make it easier on yourself when you have to deal with everything.

Can you imagine the bureaucratic nightmares created when you or those left behind have no idea where to find important documents nor what needs to be done, how, and when?

That's what the book The Gift of Preparation, is all about. Filled with practical, helpful suggestions and information, it is also a work book for you to record your details in one place to then be put somewhere safe for when the information is required. 

Covering a wide range of subjects, including wills, advanced care directive, and other legalities, utilities, financial related matters, insurances, medical coverage, pensions and online memberships, credit cards and much more, this book will help you to think and share each others details or your details and information now, whilst you can, so that special person has all the necessary knowledge and understanding needed to be able to handle everything with much more ease and be less stressed than if they were left in ignorance.

This book is for all adults, regardless of age, sex or marital status. It comprises three main sections
- Actions To Take Now
- At The Time Of Your Loss
- Managing The Afterwards. 

By looking at all this now and being very practical, you are offering those close to you, the real gift of preparation.
