This Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare and Living Will allows you to appoint an agent to make medical decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so and to set out your preferences for the receipt or non-receipt of life sustaining medical treatments. The authority granted to your agent will typically only commence when you are unable to make medical decisions on your own behalf.
If you fail to make a durable power of attorney for healthcare, a family member will usually be chosen to make medical decisions on your behalf. These decisions may not be in accordance with your wishes.
This Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare and Living Will is a downloadable form. It comes complete with guidance instructions on how to fill in the form.
