Planning For Unexpected Life Events. 

A topic not everyone will be comfortable with and we hope this never happens to you. However, with some foresight and forward planning you will be laying the foundations for successful recovery from a potentially awful situation.

By using your planner(s) you can help your friends and relatives to help you should you become incapacitated in some way.
