Patients and residents of elder care facilities like nursing homes, hospitals and assisted living retirement communities need the Notary services just as often as the rest of the population, perhaps even more. Mobile Notaries who serve them are usually friends of the signers’ families, notary employees working for eldercare facilities at which the signers live or Mobile Notary that provide the convenience of traveling to the signer’s doorstep. Many nursing homes in Massachusetts do not provide notarial services for their patients or clients; they call for independent mobile notaries like us to travel to their facilities and conduct the service on-site due to their client’s mobility concerns.

Documents That You May Need Notarized During Your Hospital or Assisted Living Stay:
By notarizing a document, we are verifying that an identified person signed the document, not that it is legal or has any claim to truth. If the contents of a notarized document are ever questioned by a court of law, a Notary Public may be cross-examined on whether she properly identified the signer, but not on the accuracy of the documented statement outside the notarial certificate.
