Indiana Law Firm Wants To Improve The Quality Of Life You Have Left

 

End of life  planning is something many people don't  want  to think about,  and death and dying can be difficult subjects, but eventually everyone should do the planning  and  have  the  conversation.  If  you  are  facing  end  of  life  issues,consulting with a compassionate attorney like Barbara J. Baird of Indianapolis can help plan for death and improve the quality of the life you have left.

 

You can increase your own peace of mind and help family members deal with your condition by explaining the type of healthcare you would prefer in the event that  you  are  seriously  injured  or  found  to  be  terminally  ill.  By  making  your preferences  known  before  a  medical  crisis,  you  will  help  to  ensure  that  your wishes are honored.

 

Aspects Of End Of Life Planning

One  of  the  most  important  aspects  of  end  of  life  planning  is  considering  and completing  advance  directives,  an  important  set  of  end  of  life  planning documents including a living will that outlines your wishes and a medical durable power of attorney who will speak for you regarding your preferences.

 

In Indiana some of these documents include:

 

  • Power  of  Attorney  for  Healthcare  Decisions  and  Appointment  of Healthcare Representative
  • Living Will Declaration
  • Life-Prolonging Procedures Declaration

 

You  may  wish  to  expand  your  advance  directive  for  your  own  specific circumstances  that  may  include  provisions  for  dementia,  certain  specific  care you may consent to or refuse, or your desire to live in an assisted living facility as opposed to being admitted to a hospital.

 

Even if you have completed an advance directive, your plan should be reviewed periodically by an attorney experienced in end of life issues.
