How Final Roadmap® End of Life Planning Works
Let's explore the Final Roadmap® Toolkit and dive into each Section to learn how it will help you Consider, Document & Communicate your wishes.
Straightforward, Comprehensive, Secure
Purchasing a Final Roadmap® Toolkit encourages you to consider your wishes and allows you to communicate them to your loved ones. It also gives you access to your own digital vault, over which you have total control. Each Section contains questions for you to consider. Answering, or even contemplating, these questions will help you prepare for the time when you are unable to speak for yourself including after your death. You will have the ability to update your Toolkit as often as you please, adding or deleting whenever you wish over your lifetime. You will be able to privately share any or all information to others with confidence. In addition to being stored in a secure sever, everything you enter into your Final Roadmap® is encrypted.
As a Final Roadmap® Member, you will have full command over which specific items each Designee is able to view within each Section. A Designee is someone you allow to have access to one or more of the components of your Final Roadmap®. You can have multiple Designees and they can include loved ones, professional advisors, medical professionals, or attorneys. Designees may view, but not change, the items to which you permit access.
