The importance of Durable Power of Attorney

One big concern for seniors is planning for final health and medical care. It’s not limited to seniors, but this would involve execution of an advanced directive, including a durable power of attorney for health care and/or a Living Will.

Properly done, the power of attorney is a legal document allowing an elderly person to appoint a trusted third party to make major healthcare decisions in case of later mental incapacity. A living will is the way for a person to direct the termination of life support should they find themselves in a persistent vegetative state often associated with a terminal illness, permanent unconsciousness, or brain death. These instruments give the senior advance control over their final medical and life-prolonging situations. Without such directives implemented in advance of incapacity, health related decisions will require a guardian be appointed.
