My Health Care Wishes App

What health and medical information do your clients have at their fingertips about themselves and family members?

Probably not much!

The newest version of Mind Your Loved Ones solves that problem more conveniently than ever before.

Mind Your Loved Ones or MYLO enables you to store and manage critical medical information & advance care directives on a smartphone for yourself and loved ones.

Whether you are a caregiver of a family member or a parent needing your children’s health information, you will be able to view, print, fax, or email your or your loved one’s information stored on the app.

If you’ve prepared a health care advance directive for your clients, yourself, or your family, the app significantly increases its accessibility, so that it’s at your fingertips when needed.

According to the ABA Commission on Law and Aging, one of the biggest problems people experience in making decisions for loved ones is that needed information is not in our hands when needed-- at the right time and at the right place. The problem is exacerbated by the fact that families tend to be spread far and wide, especially during times of public health crisis.

With this app:

  • Individuals can store on their smart phones key medical information-- such as medications, physician contacts, insurance information, medical notes, health care advance directives, and any other material important to them.
  • The newest feature is simplified sharing so that you can share all or part of a profile with another family member or friend in a few clicks. Loved ones whom the individual chooses can carry the same information on their phones. They don’t have to hunt for the information in their files or sign on to a web page to get it. There is no limit to the number of profiles that can be stored. You decide whom to share the information with.
  • Having the information on your phone enables immediate access to needed information without the need for an internet connection. One can view it, email it, or fax it to a hospital, doctor’s office, or wherever it is needed.
  • MYLO is all about sharing important information, so for a limited time, each subscription comes with a second one free for whomever you choose.

In the Apple Store or Google Play, the app is $9.99 per year, but anyone can purchase the app for a discounted price of $7.99 per year through the ABA at the following link:
