Tuesday January 3 – Boquete Hospice and Health presents “Being Prepared.” Do you know the legalities in Panama if you were to die or become ill and unable to make very important medical decisions for yourself? Laws you're familiar with in your home country do not apply! Did you know that you must have enough cash on hand to pay a doctor to pronounce someone dead and to have the mortuary pick you up? No credit cards. No IOUs. What will you do if you're hospitalized in an emergency and can't express what medical treatment you want? And who can legally enter your home to feed your pets if you can't? What's your legal marital status? What about wills? There's a lot we ASSUME we know but we don't.
