Also, this link is helpful if you want to be able to help your 18 + year old in case of emergency - Mama Bear Legal forms is a good resource and reasonably priced (although you can probably find the forms on-line elsewhere and do it for free )- and the Mama bear site explains it all....https://mamabearlegalforms.com/youngadult
If you can have a calm discussion with your young adult about how you want to be able to assist if anything happens to them while they are away - then I recommend doing the Health Care Power of attorney and HIPAA forms before they leave for college/elsewhere....the power of attorney needs to be notarized.
