We can create a health care power of attorney for you in Winston-Salem, which designates a person you trust to communicate on your behalf should you become incapacitated.
Power of attorney documents can be some of your biggest assets as you plan for specific life events. For example, if you plan to have a routine surgery, you may wish to have a health care power of attorney drawn up so that a designated person can communicate on your behalf should you become incapacitated.
At Meadows & Aderhold, P.A., we believe that having a health care power of attorney is an important step when creating your estate planning documents, and for other instances in which you may need someone you trust to speak to your medical professionals. Here are the basic tenets of a health care power of attorney:
- It is a legal document in which you designate someone to be your representative, or agent, in the event you are unable to make or communicate decisions about your health care.
- Your medical providers will reference your health care power of attorney to provide the best possible care.
- By executing a health care power of attorney, you know that the person you trust will be making those difficult health care decisions.
A health care power of attorney may be a long-standing document, or it can be temporary, depending on your specific requirements and medical care needs in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. At Meadows & Aderhold, P.A., we will be happy to assist you with the creation of this important document, as well as your other powers of attorney should you need to do so at any time.
