Probate Law :: Appointment of Health Care Agent
If you're like most people, you aren't eager to spend time thinking about what would happen if you became unable to direct your own medical care because of illness, an accident, or advanced age. However, if you don't do at least a little bit of planning – writing down your wishes about the kinds of treatment you do or don't want to receive and naming someone you trust to oversee your care, these important matters could wind up in the hands of estranged family members, doctors, or sometimes even judges, who may know very little about what you would prefer.
You'll also want what's usually called a durable power of attorney for health care. In this document, you appoint someone you trust to be your health care agent to make any necessary health care decisions for you and to see that doctors and other health care providers give you the type of care you wish to receive.
