"The information contained (in For the Record) is quite extensive and extremely valuable for anyone who must determine what is important to an individual or a family. All too frequently we find that there are no records of the important items in one's life and a product like For The Record fills the need when it becomes important. Who among us has not had the questions come up about what a sick or deceased loved one would want or demand depending upon a certain situation? For The Record offers a simplified yet complete system of organizing someone's life. Great work." --Darryl J. Roberts, author of "Profits of Death: An Insider Exposes the Death Care Industry
"I work with many older adults who will find For the Record extremely beneficial in helping them organize their lives in such a way that will make it very easy for them to access important documents... (It) has a very enticing format, is self-explanatory, and the forms are quite easy to read and use. I plan to recommend For the Record to a number of my patients, and to anyone who needs to get their life affairs in better order." --Michael Cofield, Ph.D.,Director of Behavior Medicine, SunHealth Corporation, Sun City, AZ
"A great tool for organizing personal business information. In an emergency, it can be easily found and used by a caregiver or someone managing the affairs of an individual... It collects all the important information in one place."

About the Author
Ricki Pagano has devoted her life to helping people cope with problems not of their making, problems that could befall any one of us. Ms. Pagano graduated from the University of Arizona in 1981 with a Bachelor s Degree in Psychology, and three years later received her Master s Degree in Social Work from Arizona State University. She spent the next 15 years working in the field of medical social work where she developed an expertise in, and love for, the area of geriatric care. It was here that she learned how essential it is to our own sense of well-being that we are able to maintain control over our own lives. And it was here that For the Record was conceived as a valuable tool for helping people regain and maintain that control. Since 2001, Ms. Pagano has worked in the financial services industry, and recently established Pagano LTC (www.PaganoLTC.com), a firm which focuses exclusively on long-term care insurance planning. I get tremendous satisfaction from helping people maintain their quality of life and independence, she says. We can help them make this happen by protecting them against the financially and emotionally devastating effects of incapacity. She utilizes For the Record as an integral part of the help she provides her clients. Ms. Pagano and her husband Ralph live in Phoenix, Arizona. Her husband is a physician with Arizona Medical Clinic, LTD, where he specializes in neurology. They have two adult children.
