If you suddenly received a serious health diagnosis, how prepared are you and your loved ones to cope with the challenge? Are all matters concerning your Last Will and Testament and other legal documents in order? How can you be certain the medical opinion you receive is accurate? Do you know where to search for a second one? While you may not be wealthy, do you understand what the future financial cost to your beneficiaries will be in the event your home is not held in an estate? What will your health insurance cover? How can you successfully appeal an insurance denial for reasonable coverage? Who will protect you if you’re told it’s time to be discharged from the hospital but it really isn’t? Have you taken the time to thoughtfully complete your advance healthcare instructions? Do you have reliable support to effectively accompany you in the midst of healthcare mayhem? What if a healthcare crisis hits someone you love (one of your parents, for example) who lives far from you but requires medical and/or legal protection now? SOUL SHERPA®, an experienced patient healthcare advocacy and fiduciary/estate administration enterprise, uniquely understands the importance of addressing your medical and personal legal needs simultaneously.

A Sherpa is a Tibetan person adept in mountain climbing and is acclimated to high altitudes. Often secured as a guide by other less experienced mountaineers to ensure safe passage en route to a high summit (Mount Everest, for example) a Sherpa usually resides on the high southern slopes of the Himalayas. A Soul Sherpa is an individual with expertise in advising others how to effectively organize and manage their personal business affairs as they or their loved ones age. These areas incorporate (but are not limited to) medical, legal, financial, insurance and emotional matters. A Soul Sherpa possesses the knowledge and compassion to understand the significance and privilege of successfully accompanying a client along this extraordinary journey.
