Comprehensive Guidance Through The Benefits Of Health Care Planning
If you are over 18 years old, documenting your health care wishes is essential. The future is uncertain. If you become incapacitated and unable to make your own health care decisions, a health care directive (sometimes called a “living will”) will leave your instructions to a trusted agent and health care team. The reasons could be as simple as the uncertainty of the future regarding your own health.
At rb LEGAL, LLC, in the Twin Cities, we understand that making such decisions is never easy. Therefore, we listen to your needs and work on solutions that best suit your expectations.
Working To Make Your Priorities Known
Documents such as a health care directive or health care power of attorney are an integral and essential part of an estate plan. Some of the instructions individuals could leave in these instruments include:
- Preferred type of medical treatment, including end-of-life medical treatment
- Decisions about the use of life support devices like breathing machines or tube feeding
- Appointment of an individual, also called an agent, to make health care decisions on behalf of the patient
- In case of death, funeral arrangements and whether it is your wish to donate organs or tissue
The document also includes your instructions regarding resuscitation and other sensitive topics. Therefore, we will make sure we answer your questions and concerns. We will also show the big picture, the potential pros and cons of your decisions.
Additionally, we will thoroughly explain what documents you should include in your health care plan. Our main goal is to help you draft a plan so your wishes and preferences are followed, preventing adverse consequences.
