<p><strong>Santa Cruz, Calif &mdash; Aug. 10</strong><br />The ShirleyBOARD, a free online community with tools and features to help those caring for aging loved ones stay organized and communicate with one another, has posted an article titled, &ldquo;Organizing Legal and Financial Affairs for Your Loved One.&rdquo; </p><p>The article is one of many tools that assist caregivers with finding advice about caring for their aging loved ones.<br /><br />The article takes a look at various legal documents such as wills, durable health care power of attorney and financial power of attorney. </p><p>The overview not only gives an idea of what each document is designed to accomplish, it provides a glimpse at the amount of responsibility and time commitment it takes to be a caregiver.<br /><br />&ldquo;By using the articles and tools available on ShirleyBOARD.com, I hope to provide caregivers a knowledge base and a sense of community that they can turn to when they have questions,&rdquo; Founder Mark Willaman said. &ldquo;By interacting with a group that has similar issues, caregivers can walk away feeling inspired and rejuvenated.&rdquo;<br /><br />Although most legal documents can be drawn up by a lawyer for a few hundred dollars, do-it-yourself legal kits are available from many stores or online for much less. </p><p>It is important, however, to make sure the kit conforms to the legal requirements of the state your loved one lives in. </p><p>In all cases, these documents must be prepared while your loved one is still legally competent and capable of making informed decisions.</p>
