POWER OF ATTORNEY/HEALTH CARE PROXIES
Not all estate planning involves death. Living wills, power of attorney, and health care proxies are important devices that express how decisions are to be made in the event you are incapacitated and unable to make them for yourself. An experienced estate planning attorney can analyze your situation, and provide the necessary documents to ensure your wishes are carried out.
As we grow older and experience health challenges, we may find ourselves in a position where decisions need to be made as to how we wish to be treated in medical situations. At Argos Legal Group, we take the time to listen to those wishes and put in place a solid plan to ensure they are carried out. It’s important to spell out exactly what you want done in medical situations. Seeking the legal advice of a knowledgeable attorney provides you with the opportunity to make very personal health care decisions for yourself. By thinking ahead and communicating treatment preferences early on, you can also prevent arguments within the family in having to guess what your wishes are.
Though state laws vary concerning living wills, power of attorney, and health care proxies, every state permits you to express your medical wishes and allows you to appoint someone to communicate them for you. At Argos Legal Group, we go the extra mile to ensure your every desire regarding your medical wishes are fully met. It can be difficult to plan ahead for the worst, but it’s something that has to be done. If you become incapacitated and cannot speak for yourself, you want to make sure there is someone out there who knows your decisions to advocate on your behalf.
It’s recommended you also have an open conversation with the person you’re choosing. Living wills, power of attorney, and health care proxies are fundamental documents that need to be executed during your life to ensure you only receive the healthcare you want. With years of success in navigating clients through some of life’s most difficult challenges, Argos Legal Group is here for you. Take the first step and schedule an appointment today!
