Health care directives are estate planning tools that are established to help address medical situations that can arise in your future. If you become incapacitated due to illness or injury and can no longer make decisions, a health care directive can help guide family and physicians through the care you prefer. As skilled Wright, Sherburne, and Anoka County health care directive lawyers, we can explain to you the types of directives available and how each type can assist you in the future. Many of our clients establish health care directives in cunjuction with powers of attorney, which address your financial affairs.
Health care directives, formerly known as Living Wills, provide directions to family members and physicians regarding your wishes during end-of-life care as well as in other critical medical situations in which you are unable to make your own decisions. If you are on life support or if you not responsive (in a coma, for example), you will be unable to state your decisions regarding medical care and life support. While these can be difficult decisions to make now, while you're healthy, it can save your family and friends from making painful decisions if that time comes.
Our estate planning attorneys talk to you about your needs, goals and specific concerns and share how health care directives can be beneficial for you.
