When Debra Preis learned her son would be going to school at Furman, in Greenville, South Carolina, she was very grateful. A three and a half hour drive away, Rohan would be far enough to have some independence, but close enough for her to get to him should something unexpected occur.
“I had heard through the grapevine that you need to protect your child if they are in a physical or mental state where they cannot make decisions,” Debra says. “I started to panic, thinking what if my son gets in a car wreck? He could be in a vegetative state and with no healthcare POA, I’d be powerless to influence decisions about his care.”
Then, Debra found Mama Bear on the Furman Parents’ forum.
After seeing mentions of Mama Bear Legal Forms’ Young Adult POA service in the Furman parents forum, as well as ads on Facebook, Debra realized this was an ideal way to put this important document in place before Rohan left for school.
“I can’t even tell you. It took the weight off my shoulders,” she says. “I was stressing about needing to contact a lawyer and draw up papers. I was preparing myself for a hassle because I didn’t know what to expect. Then I saw Mama Bear mentioned on the parent forum. Then, later I saw their ad on Facebook.”
“Is this for real?”
One of Debra’s first thoughts was whether or not the process could really be that easy or affordable. She read reviews, did some research and gave it a shot.
Debra was pleased with how quick, painless and affordable the process was.
Why Debra recommends Mama Bear for your young adult POA
“I would definitely recommend Mama Bear. I highly recommend for parents who are new to this concept to research college parent forums and Facebook pages and look into it. It’s a simple thing, but one that many parents may not think about.
“There are so many things to deal with when your child goes away to college for the first time and a POA is just so easy to overlook. But you want your child protected, and Mama Bear helps you do that.”
