One of the major areas of concern as we grow older is ensuring that our wishes regarding health care are respected. There are several ways to make sure that your wishes are known and followed, including:
- Health care surrogates — Naming someone as your health care surrogate gives that person the power to make health care decisions for you should you become incapacitated. Unfortunately, if you do not make such a designation, the decision-making power does not automatically transfer to someone else like a wife or husband. You have to take affirmative steps to enjoy the peace of mind that someone of your choosing will be making health care decisions for you.
- Living wills — A living will is technically referred to as an advance medical directive. This document is used to express, while you are able, your choices regarding future medical care. This document typically focuses on end-of-life care decisions, but it can be used for more specific choices such as a decision to for go blood transfusions.
Having the right attorney to guide you can help you get the greatest advantage from designating a health care surrogate and from a living will.
