You might want to consider getting a Power of Attorney for Health Care and another for Financial. If your 18 year old gets hurt while they are away you may have limited access to their health information due to HIPAA laws.
For a reasonable fee we will help you complete the forms and have them notarized while you are here. Plan on spending about an hour. Give us a call at 925.459.8440 or click on one of the website contact forms and state you are interested in the Power of Attorney meeting. We can get it scheduled and you can send your student off with the peace of mind that if something does happen, you have what you need to help.
