Advance Medical Directives (Power of Attorney, Advance Directives and Medical Orders)


What is a Power of Attorney and do I need one?

Advance medical directives are legal documents that allow individuals to express their healthcare preferences in advance, including decisions about medical treatment, end-of-life care, and appointing a healthcare proxy. They ensure that one’s wishes are honored even if they are unable to communicate or make decisions for themselves. Whether you are creating your Power of Attorney (POA), helping your aging parents, or launching your 18-year-old newly legal adult child, you can find the answers here.
