Healthcare Powers of Attorney/Living Wills
Healthcare powers of attorney give your loved ones and medical professionals direction on your preferences regarding treatment if you’re incapacitated by a serious accident or illness. It also gives your loved ones the authority to manage the business aspects of your healthcare. A healthcare power of attorney speaks for you when you’re not able to speak for yourself.
A living will spells out the types of medical treatments and life-sustaining measures you want and don’t want if you reach an end-stage medical condition. Most often, a living will is part of an overall healthcare power of attorney document.
Choosing a person to act as your health care agent is an important part of estate planning. You need to trust that this person has your interests at heart, understands your wishes and will act accordingly.
