- Living Will
A will is an estate planning document that establishes where your belongings, real property, minor children, and other assets go after your death. Without a will, state statutes and judges will use generalities to dictate where your property will go and who will care for your minor children. Accordingly, it is important to prepare a will and keep it current as life changes occur.
Durable Power of Attorney (POA)
A durable power of attorney allows you to designate a person you highly trust to manage your personal, financial, and business affairs with the same power and authority as if the individual were you. A good POA will allow your selected agent to step into any situation and handle it on your behalf if you are unable to do so.
Health Care Power of Attorney (HCPOA)
A health care power of attorney designates a person of your choosing to make health care related decisions for you in any given situation where you are unable to make them yourself. These decisions can range from decisions about surgery, the administration of certain medicines, or the removal of life support measures.
A living will pairs with a HCPOA and allows you to give specific directions for certain health care decisions. These are namely decisions about end-of-life care and life support measures.
