Health Care Powers of Attorney
Health Care Powers of Attorney allow you to designate someone to make medical decisions for you when you are unable to do so. While the absence of a Health Care Power of Attorney may often not a problem between spouses, problems can occur when children of a surviving spouse can’t agree on the course to take for a medical condition. We recommend a Health Care Power of Attorney for everyone.
One of the key reasons for having a Power of Attorney or a Healthcare POA is to avoid guardianship, which can be a costly and time-consuming process.
We are willing and capable to draft Health Care Powers of Attorney, but you can find the forms on-line and at hospitals, nursing homes and medical providers- and the forms are easy and straight-forward.
