Healthcare Power of Attorney

*questions*

 

As we age, we start thinking about the end of our lives. How will I pass? Where will  I  pass?  Will  I  pass  quickly?  Will  I  suffer?  Who  will  be  there  to  make decisions if I am unable to? What is it that I want during my last days? These are all questions that make us uneasy, but demand answers to ensure our wants  are  carried  out.  Johnson  County,  Indiana  estate  planning  attorney Barbara Baird can help ease your worries and document your wishes.

 

Establishing A Health Care Power Of Attorney

Indiana grants an individual the right to dictate who is in charge of their healthcare and well-being if they are ever health care power of attorney should be willing to abide by all of your wishes.  An  estate  planning  attorney  can  help  you  and  your  selected  health  care representative create an advance directive.  An advance directive is a contract between  you  and  your  health  care  representative  or  “attorney-in-fact.”  The advance directive ensures you retain as much power as possible, even after your health care representative takes over the decision-making. An advance directive is also beneficial should you decide there are certain people you do not want to be able to make decisions regarding your health care.

 

Establish A Health Care Proxy

If you wish to retain control of your life until the end, establishing a health care power of attorney is in your best interest. If you have not named a health care representative and you become incapacitated, the decisions made regarding your health care are out of your control. You need to create and document a solid plan for you to maintain as much control over your health and life as possible.
