Health Care Directives

Health Care Directives Give You Control Over Your Healthcare

Are you prepared for the worst? Do you know who will speak for you in the event of a medical emergency or serious accident? Is there any way for your loved ones to know and act on your wishes in the event you are not able to speak on your own behalf?

If not, it is about time you met with an estate planning lawyer to establish health care directives. Having these in place allows you to relax and move confidently into the future, knowing that your family members will not be left in the dark and you will be cared for exactly as you wish if anything happens to you. These will also save your close loved ones a great deal of grief and uncertainty in the event your health turns for the worst, and they will not have to make critical medical decisions on their own.

What Does a Health Care Directive Do?

A health care directive, often referred to as a “living will,” tells your loved ones exactly what you want them to do in the event you become incapacitated or unable to make decisions for yourself. They allow you to express your wishes regarding any and all of the following:

  • Resuscitation via CPR, defibrillator, etc.
  • Life support (and the length of time you would like to be left on life support)
  • Intravenous and/or tube feeding
  • Treatment for viruses and infections as you near the end of life
  • Home health and/or hospice care
  • Organ donation

In addition to helping you decide where you stand on all of the above, we can help you establish a health care power of attorney, which allows you to select a person (or even several people) who will be tasked with deciding your future and making important choices about your health care in the event you become incapacitated.
