Living Wills and Health Care Proxies

Determining Who Will Make Medical Decisions When You Cannot

You don’t plan to get sick or injured, but you can be prepared for what will happen, and who will make decisions on your behalf, if and when you do suffer injury or illness. Talking about what kind of care you want after a debilitating injury or illness can be difficult, but it can be one the greatest gifts you give your loved ones. Otherwise, in the midst of their anxiety over your medical condition, they’ll also face the additional stress of trying to figure out what you want, or what’s best for you. We can help you prepare and execute the necessary documents to eliminate that potential worry.

We have a thorough knowledge and understanding of the tools and strategies available to help you make certain your wishes are honored in the event of an incapacitating injury or illness.

Prepare for Future Medical Decisions

We will help you put effective measures in place to ensure your wishes are followed, and that your loved ones don’t face unnecessary stress or anxiety. We’ll help you prepare and execute:

A living will

This is your statement of your wishes regarding future medical treatment. Your living will addresses issues such as resuscitation and the use of artificial life support, and typically includes statements regarding the administration of certain medications or the performance of surgery.

A health care proxy

A health care proxy identifies who will make health care decisions for you if you lack the capacity to make your own health decisions. You should notify the person named before you execute the proxy, and make certain they understand your wishes.

We also prepare burial and funeral directives and other such documents.
