Katherine Coates: I joined your group last time and made great progress. We have two severely disabled children who we care for at home and this has always been a concern of ours if anything should happen to us.

My husband and I have made a new will and if anything happens to us our home is now subject to a disability trust (our solicitor suggested this and something we hadn't been aware of!).

Our home is now legally bound to this Trust and cannot be sold while our children are alive.

This is a great weight off our minds.

The trustees/executors have been made aware of this, as have their carers, who are all supportive and have agreed to care for them until end of life at home.

The GP and healthcare team are also aware and supportive.

Thank you so much for giving me the push I needed to sort this.

Very best wishes Katherine x

DIY Plans

Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to be sitting down with a completed end of life plan in your hand, feeling relieved and at peace that it is finally done (in 4 months or less) and what’s more - you have enjoyed the process!

Planning for the Inevitable

Amazing, isn't it? We often ignore the fact that our time is limited. None of us know when we’ll take our last breath, and by the time it happens, it’s too late to do anything about it.

This isn't just a philosophical musing—it's a call to action. When we die without a plan in place or without discussing our wishes, we leave our friends and families ill-prepared to cope during such a difficult time.

Take Action Now to Ease the Burden Later

Here are some steps you can take to ensure your loved ones are prepared:

1. Open the Conversation

Start by having a candid conversation with your family about your wishes. It might feel uncomfortable, but it’s crucial. Share your thoughts on medical care, funeral arrangements, and any other important matters.

2. Complete an End-of-life Plan

Create a comprehensive End-of-Life Plan and Make sure this information is accessible to your executor.

3. Create a Will

A will is a legal document outlining how you want your assets distributed after death. It also names an executor, a person who will manage your estate. Without a will, your state’s laws will determine how your assets are divided, which may not reflect your wishes.

4. Designate a Power of Attorney

Appoint someone you trust to make decisions on your behalf if you become unable to do so. This includes both financial and healthcare decisions.

5. Complete your Advance Directive

Take the opportunity to keep control of your healthcare if you do not have a voice by completing your Advance Directive and Statement.

Review and Update Regularly

Life changes, and so should your plans. Regularly review and update your will, power of attorney, and asset list to ensure they reflect your current situation and wishes.

SAVE HEARTACHE

Your grieving loved ones will be grateful that you’ve left full instructions which means they don’t have to think about getting it 'right', wondering what you wanted, or being fearful of being judged.

SAVE MONEY

When you have a plan in place, you save your family from a lot of unnecessary expenditure - a financial burden they may not be capable of coping with, even years down the road.

AVOID UPSET

  Family members and friends won't be disagreeing, feeling put out or even having rows, because it will all have been discussed beforehand and you'll have left clear instructions about what you want to happen

Julie Sanders-image

Julie Sanders - Scotland: After over a year of knowing my will wasn’t correct, but not knowing what to do about it because of complex family dynamics, I contacted Before I Go Solutions.

With their help, I not only thought through who should be my executor but also sorted out my powers of attorney and many other things to do with my end-of-life plan.

Now it's done, I feel so relieved and happy, it really is a huge weight off my mind.

End-of-Life Conversations Matter

Hi, I’m James, Founder of MyGoodbyes & Before I Go Solutions. I completely understand how tricky it can be to bring up end-of-life matters; everyone avoids the elephant in the room, especially with loved ones.

At Before I Go Solutions, one of our key missions is to make end-of-life plans as commonplace as birth plans.

Inspired by my own journey and experiences with the death of my father, Alan, I founded MyGoodbyes and Before I Go Solutions.

ElizabethHarley

Elizabeth Harley: I attended BIGS's online workshop as I was feeling a bit thrown off balance by the Covid 19 situation. Being interested in Buddhism, I’d previously done a fair bit of work around impermanence and preparation for death, but none of my previous work quite did it for this situation. BIGS’s course was the missing bit of the puzzle for me. Jane is a gifted teacher, who can both inspire and convey necessary knowledge and understanding with clarity and gentleness, leaving plenty of room for individual responses, while creating a safe space for everyone through holding appropriate and helpful boundaries.

Getting Started

Ruth T: I wanted to thank you for the support and encouragement. Yesterday during a drive in the car, we talked about specifics (funeral, cremation, location, clothing, music etc) and I feel very relieved to have talked about that. It's almost like I feel less afraid of the unexpected. Thanks again. I'm learning slowly, but it's happening - mostly thanks to your hard work and experience!
