Nanny Magazine: Planning for the Inevitable

December 28, 2020   -  

As a long-time nanny myself, it’s only natural for people to choose caregivers to care for their affairs and honor their wishes after they pass.

In early 2020, I had learned that a dear friend of mine had become severely ill, so much so that she was in a battle for her life. Sadly, a few months later, she lost the battle after quite an impressive fight. Upon her passing, I had learned that I had been named the executor of her estate. As I learned more about that role and the responsibilities surrounding it, I learned that locating basic information and documentation was one of the biggest challenges.

Enter The Postage, a digital locker of sorts, which can make gathering this information easier for the person trusted with settling the affairs of another. When I learned about this service, I made a commitment to get my own affairs in order to make it easier for those tasked with taking care of my affairs after I pass, and to share with others, especially nannies, the importance of doing so themselves.

Recently I had a conversation with the co-founder of The Postage, Emily Cisek, and here is what she had to say about nannies and how The Postage can help.
