Healthcare Proxy & Living WillCall us at 800-354-1544
A healthcare proxy is a medical plan for disability. It appoints an agent to talk to doctors and makes end-of-life decisions if someone is incapacitated or unable to do it him or herself.
A living will expounds upon an individual’s wishes in the event of disability. It covers such topics as mechanical ventilation, intubation, antibiotics, dialysis, and more. It allows a client to specify whether they’d prefer to spend their last days at home or in a medical facility.
While these topics may seem grim, it is important to have a plan in place so that your wishes will be executed effectively. It is equally important to discuss these matters with your family and the agents that you appoint, to make them aware of your wishes.
