A health care power of attorney, sometimes referred to as a medical power of attorney, is essentially a private agreement in which you designate a trusted person to make medical decisions on your behalf if you become incapacitated. A health care power of attorney is a crucial piece of any comprehensive estate plan. Without a health care power of attorney, your loved ones may have to go to court to obtain the necessary legal authority to make medical decisions on your behalf (the guardianship process). Such a proceeding can be lengthy, expensive and invasive.
Instead of letting a judge make that important decision for you, why not make it yourself? Planning ahead will provide you with immense relief knowing your affairs are in order should something happen.
