    Thank You Boquete Community!

    A Big Thank You to the Boquete Community! Our latest Buenos Vecinos Food Drive in front of Romero’s Food Market in Boquete August 18th was a great success, thanks to generous community and even tourists who stopped by to learn more about our food charity and to donate cash and selected non-perishable food items. By the end of the day, BVB had collected enough to support one of our needy families for more than a year. We appreciate your big hearts! We want to also thank those Coconut Foundation Members who recently renewed their annual pledges to support BVB for a minimum of $360 a year. And hats off to N & N Catering (Nairn Cutten and Nancy Halbert) who donate the profits from their catering jobs to Buenos Vecinos. Their substantial donation means that our clients will continue to find BVB groceries at their door throughout the year. BVB could not exist without this kind of support. Thank you!
  5. HOSPICE’S LIVING WILL WORKSHOP Due to an overwhelming response for the Living Will Workshop, we are closing the registration. There will be more workshops in the future. For any of you interested in this workshop who have never attended the “Being Prepared” presentation by Hospice, please do so. A Living Will is not a stand alone item. In Panama, it is so important that you know the entire picture of how you need to “be prepared”. At least as best as one can know . Panama has its own laws, customs and way of doing things. The legal paperwork you have in your country of origin does not supercede the way things are done here in Panama in relation to any property held in Panama. And if you are no longer able to make decisions for yourself, the laws and customs of Panama will govern as long as you remain in Panama. Watch for the Hospice “Being Prepared” presentation. Learn more about what you need to know and prepare for.
  6. HOSPICE FORMS WORKSHOP: LIVING WILLS On Thursday, Sept.6, Hospice will present a workshop on filling out your “Being Prepared” forms, especially the Living Will. Workshop will be held at Animales from 9:30 am. – approximately 12:00 p.m. If you are finished prior to that time and have no more questions, feel free to leave. The Living Will is an important document explaining how you want to be treated should you become unable to make medical decisions for yourself. Do you want tube feeding or liquids? Do you want pain medication? The ramifications of these questions will be anwered so that you can make educated choices and decide what is important to you. Having others make those decisions may not be in your best interest and is not fair to those individuals having to make those decisions for you. Nurses and those in the psychology field will be available at the workshop to answer more personal questions. Please RSVP for your space. Nikki Steele #6341-9428 njspanama@yahoo.com

    Welcome to the newsletter of Boquete Health and Hospice Is this email not displaying correctly? View it in your browser. Report on Being Prepared Part 2: What You Need to Know Juan Contreras and Lourdes Miranda, local attorneys, presented recently at BCP the second part of our Being Prepared presentation. They addressed the legal aspects of a Last Will and Living Will here in Panama. Yes, things do change. It was good information for all no matter where you are in the process of being prepared. Some interesting facts: • If your foundation and bank account are set up properly, you do not need a Panamanian marriage certificate. • In Panama before you get married you need to declare you are single. Therefore, if you are married in another country, you would be making a fraudulent statement on the application for marriage. • All Last Wills go through probate, it is best to review your documents every few years to make sure they are in order. • Make sure your spouse is the beneficiary on your bank account. Then your spouse will have access to the account funds. • Check your property documents. If you have a corporation with bearer shares, you need to look at changing it because of changes in Panamanian law. As always, check with your attorney. If you missed Being Prepared Part I, presented by a Betty Landis, and would like to see it offered again soon, please let us know at boquetehealth@gmail.com. If there is enough interest, we will reschedule. Be on the lookout for Part 3 of the Being Prepared series to be offered this summer by Nikki Steele. In this workshop, you will have an opportunity to ask “Being Prepared” questions of medical and counseling professionals.
