Ensuring Your Wishes are Known and Respected When the Time Comes
Thinking about a time when you are no longer able to make decisions or express your wishes is not pleasant, but it’s necessary to plan for this possibility. We never know what the future may hold, and we could find ourselves suffering a major medial event that leaves us incapacitated and unable to communicate. Without a way to make our wishes known, medical providers will not know what types of interventions we’d want, and our loved ones would have to step in and speculate on what our wishes would be.
By putting Advance Directives in place, you can make sure your loved ones and medical professionals know and respect your wishes, ensuring that you receive only the interventions you want. Contact Legacy Law Group today to discuss how Advance Directives can give you and your family a sense of peace and control in a time of stress and anxiety.
Making Your Wishes Known
Advance Directives document the specific medical care you wish to receive, should you become incapacitated or faced with the end of your life. Advance Directives typically include a Living Will (also called a Health Care Directive) and a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care. The Health Care Directive outlines the circumstances in which you would—or would not—want your life prolonged, as well as any medical procedures you would want or would refuse to have. The Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care names a trusted individual to make important medical decisions on your behalf. Both of these documents are key to ensuring that you remain in control of your future, even if you become unable to verbally express your wishes.
