Making Important Decisions For Your Future
As highlighted by tragic cases of families fighting over how to treat incapacitated relatives, it is extremely important to have a living will or healthcare directive in place in addition to your last will and testament. A living will clearly lays out your choices on when and how you want to be treated when you are in a vegetative state. This allows you to preserve the dignity that comes with making your own end-of-life choices. You can also appoint a health care proxy, someone you trust to make decisions about your health care when you are incapacitated.
Guardianships And Power Of Attorney
For business and financial matters, it is important to have a plan in place as well. For instance, you can appoint a guardian to make decisions for you when you are no longer in the right state of mind to do so. Also, you can give someone, often one of your children, power of attorney in order to manage your money and assets when you are gone.
