Unfortunately, health care emergencies are a part of everyone’s life at some point. There may be a point when you are unable to make medical decisions for yourself. For that reason, it is important to be prepared for when the moment comes.
Two important methods of planning for a healthcare emergency are a living will and health care directives.
A living will is a legal document that sets forth your preferences or goals for medical care in the event that you cannot make decisions for yourself.
Healthcare directives specify your desires for medical care and appoints a person authorized to make decisions on your behalf in the event that you can no longer make those decisions yourself.
We can also provide a specific Healthcare Letter of Instruction in the event of incapacitation that provides your healthcare wishes in advance.
