With the rising cost of healthcare and homecare, being prepared is very important. I remember with my mom, her medical coverage quickly reached its limits. As a family we had to become very creative with the way we did things. So it is very important to have a plan. Even if you are healthy right now. What I do for my family is keep our own medical records. Have a book for each member of your family. Every time anyone goes to the doctor I either get a copy of all medical records or I keep my own records. By doing this you are prepared to supply information at a moment’s notice.
