Do I Need a Health Care Power of Attorney?
As life-sustaining medical technologies continue to develop, there is the increasing possibility that we may be faced with decisions about how we want to be treated at the end of our lives. In the event that an accident, injury, or illness renders us unable to speak for ourselves, it is very important that we make our wishes known in advance. The document known as a health care power of attorney enables us to express our wishes. All competent adults 18 years of age or older should have a healthcare power-of-attorney. Drafted correctly, this document allows one to avoid the need to go to court to establish a guardianship of the person, often a costly process.
