As Indianapolis-area extended care professionals and Long-Term Care specialists, Ed and I work to help our clients preserve the assets they’ve worked so hard to accumulate during their lifetimes.
At Long Term Care Resources, we often help folks better understand the many choices available to them on Long-Term Care plans, effectively protecting their future.
We also like the idea many of our estate planning colleagues now recommend, that of preserving financial data – as well as personal data, such as photos and stories from your childhood. In fact, recently, we found some new websites set up especially to enable easier “memory preservation.”
Here are some great ways to preserve memories and important financial documents for you and your family:
Store important or interesting documents, photos, files, and videos on sites like Dropbox. This cloud-based service is a safe place where your entries can be accessed and shared no matter where you are, via cloud servers. Depending on the service you select, from 2 to 10 gigabytes of material can be stored and accessed, free of charge.
Have a story or two to tell? Consider ‘blogging’ about your life at blogger.com. Write about your memories and add photos or videos to your posts using this free service. Family members and friends can add comments as well. Your blog can be password-protected so that only friends and family have access to it.
Free sites like flickr can store thousands of photos for you. You decide whether the photos are private or public, and you allow friends and family viewing privileges.
Sure, we’re extended care professionals serving Indianapolis, Indiana and the surrounding areas, but Ed and I are always looking to help our clients find to make their futures more productive, more protected, and more informed. We love the idea of helping folks like you save important documents — and precious memories — for future generations!
