FILE OF LIFE:
The “File of Life” is a miniature medical history that is kept in a red plastic sleeve with a magnetic strip. Once the history card is filled out, it is placed back in the sleeve, then placed on the outside of the refrigerator in a visible place.
The “File of Life” details a person´s name, emergency medical contacts and insurance policy information. It details current health problems, current medications and dosages. There is space to list allergies, recent surgeries, your doctor´s name and phone number, your health care proxy information and your religious affiliation.
In need of a File of Life? Contact Healthy Generations Area Agency on Aging at 540-371-3375.
