Where applicable, Cake guides you to create important legal documents to protect your end-of-life wishes.
Legal healthcare documents
We help you understand which healthcare documents you need to create, where to find them, and how to complete them:
- Health care proxy
- Living will (some states combine the two under one document)
Once your document is legal by your state's standards, upload it to Cake for safekeeping and sharing.
We help you prepare to create a will by asking the important questions to get you thinking about the dependents and all of the assets you would need to protect. You can use your answers to have a more productive, informed will writing session with a lawyer or estate attorney Once your will is complete, upload it to Cake for safekeeping and sharing.
Decisions that don't need to be "legally binding"
Not all end-of-life decisions need to be in legal documents to come true. For example, if you want to play Beyonce or Fleetwood Mac at your funeral, your loved ones just have to know about it for them to carry this out. The most important thing for these types of decisions is to make sure they are known so that they can be honored. As you answer questions on Cake, we generate documents that record your wishes for things like funeral, memorial, legacy, and pet care decisions. While these planning documents don't need to be legally binding, they provide invaluable guidance to your loved ones to carry out your wishes and honor your life in the way that is most true to who you are.
