California Document Preparers

At California Document Preparers, we are Pro Se ("for yourself") bonded legal document assistants; in all cases, our clients are representing themselves in uncontested legal matters.

We assist our clients in preparing a wide range of legal documents, including wills and living trusts. Our comprehensive living trust package includes a power of attorney for financial matters and advance healthcare directive as well as a section for listing important contact information for your doctors, pharmacist, insurance providers, medications, etc. — information your loved ones will need if you should become incapacitated.

We have three convenient Bay Area locations: Dublin, 925-479-9600; Oakland, 510-452-2320; and Walnut Creek, 925-407-1010. Our website has more information: www.cadocpreparers.com.

Hope Hospice — Bringing hope for a better today

In 1980, Hope Hospice began as a grassroots effort by a small group of concerned community members who wanted to help terminally ill patients to be cared for at home. During that time, we have delivered care to more than 6,400 patients and their families and have remained a nonprofit serving people regardless of their income or insurance status.

When you need Hope, we are there for you, providing personalized hospice care, relief from pain, symptom management and emotional and spiritual support.

Dial 925-829-8770 for a complimentary evaluation. Visit HopeHospice.com for more information.

Marymount Villa Retirement Center

At Marymount Villa Retirement Center we believe everyone can find meaning and joy in life, even when they need a little help with daily living. We offer a wide range of personal care options which include a custom tailored care-plan, memory care, assisted living, short-term respite and hospice care. Importantly, unlike some independent and assisted living communities, we do not require long-term contracts or elaborate buy-in arrangements.

Our large sunny veranda overlooks the beautiful, historic Casa Peralta in San Leandro. We are located just around the corner from St. Leander Church. For a tour, please contact us at 510-895-5007.
