An Advance health care directive, also known as living will, personal directive, advance directive, or advance decision, are instructions given by individuals specifying what actions should be taken for their health in the event that they are no longer able to make decisions due to illness or incapacity, and appoints a person to make such decisions on their behalf. A living will is one form of advance directive, leaving instructions for treatment. This separate document lets your family members know the type of care you do or do not want to receive should you become unable to communicate your wishes.
By using this form you can designate the persons you wish to nominate as users of the space. This does not mean that they would own the space but would merely be authorized users.
Perpetual care is money paid to help provide maintenance to graves and cemeteries, such as lawn mowing and fertilizing. Perpetual care is kept in its own account, monitored and regulated by the State of Oklahoma, and the money paid by the individual(s) purchasing a lot is deposited into that account. Only the interest, and not the principal, of the perpetual care account may be expended for care of cemeteries.
Cemeteries are not normally responsible for the maintenance of individual headstones, which remain the family's private property. At Rolling Oaks, additional arrangements can be made for a program of regular cleaning of a specific monument.
