Preserving a Record for Your Dependent

by Advocord Team | August 2023

During my career as a lawyer, I have worked with clients who were very concerned about what would happen if they were no longer able to be the decision-maker for their dependent.

Many parents of children with cognitive limitations, for example, fear what would happen if they were no longer able to care for their child.

How would their child be impacted if all the parents’ caregiving knowledge was lost? There are so many details, big and small, that a successor caregiver would need to know.

Details like what calms their autistic son. Or what makes their daughter with an intellectual disability laugh. All the little things that are so important to the quality of their child’s life. Things that aren’t noted in a medical record, but that only the parent knows.

Key Takeaways

  1. Building a record for your dependent helps ensure the highest ongoing quality of care.

  2. Small details not typically captured in official records can easily be stored and shared with Advocord.

  3. Guardianship software makes it easy to preserve and transfer records to a successor guardian if needed.

Furthermore, think of all the paperwork and accounts that would need to be transferred to whomever would be stepping into the parents’ role. Healthcare records, school records, bank accounts and more.

One of the reasons I created Advocord was to help parents and other advocates gain peace of mind.

When you use Advocord to record the important details concerning your dependent child, that information can easily be made available to a successor guardian.

Advocord can bring comfort to parents and other advocates, knowing that a detailed record is all in one place to pass along to whomever may have responsibility for your their dependent in the future.
