I have been notarizing many of these docs for family members that in fragile health. Sometimes we are lucky that they are aware what is happening and can sign the documents. Sometimes they may not also know what’s going on. I had to refuse to sign some because of their mental status, which really breaks my heart. This is why I created this. Please make sure all your affairs and wishes are in order. It is never too soon and you are never too young to have these documents prepared. These documents not only helps you get your wishes executed as you want, it makes your care giver’s life easier. They won’t have the need to deal with the courts as much because you had documents detailing your wishes.
Thanks in advance for helping out. Your love one or caregivers and notary appreciate you having these documents prepared early. We hate to turn families away because your mental status is questionable. It is our duty both legally and ethically to refuse to execute any notarization if we feel the person is not in their right mental status. Your caregiver or guardian are sadden with your current health situation and the last thing they need to heard form a notary is “Sorry, I can not notarize this document because your love one is not aware what’s going on or has any idea who they are.”
