The thought of being unable to make your own medical decisions is frightening. Imagine if there were no one to speak on your behalf. Even if you believe your family members know your wishes, what would happen if they disagreed with each other?
A Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care Decisions is a document that names a person (your Attorney-in-Fact) to be your voice for medical decisions. It does not take away your own authority as long as you are capable of making decisions regarding your own care.
We can help you ensure your voice is heard and your personal and medical wishes are followed. A Health Care Power of Attorney will protect you by:
- Avoiding a court-appointed Guardian should you become incapacitated
- Communicating your wishes to your doctors and healthcare providers
- Ensuring your medical treatment is what you desire
