Protect Your Wishes With Advance Health Care Directives
One of the most difficult parts of end-of-life planning is also one of the most important. If you become unable to communicate your own wishes, a living will or advance health care directive may be the only way your family members and medical providers can understand what you want to happen.
Advance health care directives and medical powers of attorney may be part of an estate plan or standalone documents. At Owens Law Firm, we help clients make sure their medical wishes will be carried out if they ever become incapacitated. Some of the types of documents we can draft include:
- Living wills and advance health care directives: These are written instructions for medical providers that describe the end-of-life treatments you do and do not want to receive, including any do not resuscitate (DNR) orders.
- Medical power of attorney or durable power of attorney: These documents designate the person who you want to make decisions about your health care that may not be covered by your living will or other directives.
