Skilled Guidance With Health Care Directives

With a power of attorney, you can appoint a close friend or loved one to make decisions on your behalf when you are unable to make those decisions for yourself. Panaggio Law can help you create a power of attorney and custom estate plan that meets your needs.

What Documents Do You Need Regarding Medical Decisions?

There are two types of powers of attorney available: health care powers of attorney and durable powers of attorney. With a health care power of attorney, sometimes referred to as a health care proxy, you can choose a trusted individual to make medical and health care decisions for you if you become incapacitated. This is different from a living will or health care directive, which is a written document that provides guidance to your family and health care professionals.

A durable power of attorney allows you to choose an individual to make financial decisions in your place. This includes decisions regarding your finances, investments and property. This can be helpful if you become incapacitated and are unable to pay the bills and manage your finances.
