A Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care is an essential estate planning tool.
What is a Durable Power of Attorney?
A Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care is a written document in which you tell your health care providers who will make medical decisions for you if you become either temporarily or permanently incapacitated.
“A health care Power of Attorney is an important
estate planning tool that can bring you peace of mind and clearly
convey your wishes if you are unable to.”
In the document, you tell the person you chose to act on your behalf what he/she should do if the routine becomes the catastrophic and important medical decisions need to be made on your behalf.
If, or when, you are no longer incapacitated, you resume control over your own medical decisions.
Benefits of a Health Care Power of Attorney
The main benefit to having a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care is that it brings clarity to what otherwise could be a confusing and conflict-filled situation.
You gain the peace of mind of knowing that a person you trust will make important medical decisions for you based on your stated wishes and personal values.
Your doctor knows who to talk to if a medical decision is required.
And your loved-ones don’t have to make the kind of group decisions that all too often pit one person against another.
