If you want to create a medical power of attorney, our team can help you through every step of the process.
Although everyone would like to believe that they’ll retain full possession of their faculties as they reach old age, the truth is that there’s no way to guarantee that. There may come a time when you can no longer communicate your wishes concerning things like medical care. Fortunately, there are ways to prepare for this possibility, such as by drafting a power of medical attorney. This document allows you to appoint someone you trust to speak on your behalf concerning medical decisions should you become unable to communicate those choices under your own power. Our team at Vanderbloemen, Fleischer & White, PLLC has the experience to guide you through the process of creating this document, and we encourage you to give us a call.
A medical power of attorney will cover you in a variety of situations, including brain injury, coma, dementia, and other conditions and injuries. Although it’s possible that you’ll never need this protection, it’s far better to be safe than sorry. Some people assume that they don’t need medical power of attorney if they have a living will, but these two documents do different things. A living will is static and can’t cover every possible scenario that might arise, whereas a medical power of attorney allows you to appoint a person to act on your behalf, thereby offering greater flexibility in how to respond to the situation at hand.
