Creating An End Of Life Plan Is Always A Good Idea
As we age, we face the inevitable reality that we will no longer be able to care for ourselves in the same ways we used to. The good news is that the aging process is typically a slow one, meaning we can plan now for many different contingencies and have the time and space to adjust that plan throughout our lives. At Busson & Sikorski, PC Attorneys at Law, we know the most powerful legal tool you have is designating a power of attorney.
What Is A Power Of Attorney?
A power of attorney is a document that outlines who is responsible for your care if you become ill or incapacitated. The person in charge of your property can be a different person than the person in charge of your medical decisions, or you can name multiple people to care for you jointly. Consider three main questions:
- What do you want to happen if you are no longer able to do daily tasks like bathe or feed yourself?
- What should happen to your home and other property if you are no longer able to stay at home or need more intensive care?
- Who do you trust to make health care decisions for you, and what do you want that person to know about your wishes?
A combination of a detailed power of attorney and a comprehensive health care directive can give you peace of mind and give your loved ones much-needed guidance.
