Long Beach has four major hospitals - Long Beach Memorial, Pacific Hospital, Community Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital. Unfortunately, it isn't until someone is hospitalized that often times people remember the importance of having their affairs in order.
Part of having your affairs in order to have a health care directive and power of attorney filled out and notarized so that care givers and financial institutions know who you have appointed to handle your affairs if there ever is a time when you are unable to.
Hospitals and convalescent homes will want to have your health care directive on file and financial institatuations will want a copy of your power of attorney before they let any transcations be performed on the behalf of someone else.
If you need a mobile notary The Document Diva travels to hospitals, residences and convalescent homes to assist with all power of attorney and health care directive needs.
