I recently came across a fun article titled “Top 10 Reasons You Should Never Write a Will” written by Tom Deans, PhD, on his blog at willingwisdom.com. As an estate planning professional, I am forever explaining to people the importance of “putting one’s affairs in order”. Mr. Deans gets that point across very well, using amusing wit and sarcasm to do so. I would add one footnote to Mr. Deans’ article. Reason #8 refers to an “Advance Health Directive” being included in a Will. In Ontario, this sort of language would be included in a Power of Attorney for Personal Care – but his reasoning certainly applies as to why this important document should also be in place for every adult in Ontario!
