A fourth recommended resource is the Mind Your Loved Ones or MYLO smartphone app that may be purchased at a discounted price through the ABA web page.  It provides a practical way to make your health care power of attorney easily accessible, along with any other documents or information you choose, with the click of a few buttons on your smartphone or on the phones of family or friends whom you choose.
