Who Do You Trust To Decide For You?

As a child and even as a teenager, your parents can make decisions for you. Your parents will not be able to speak for you when you become an adult at the age of 18. If you become ill, they cannot make decisions on your behalf. Doctors and other authorities such as police officers are not able to share information with your parents without your permission.

Protect Your Rights Before It Is Too Late

As an adult, it is your responsibility to ensure that you are protected. That means that you allow your parents or a trusted family member to speak for you when you are unable to speak for yourself. The best way to accomplish this is to work with an estate planning lawyer to create a living will, also known as an advanced health care directive or Health Care Proxy.

As we get older, having a Health Care Proxy becomes increasingly essential. The older we get, the higher the chance of a severe medical event. Conditions, such as the after-effects of a stroke, may require a family member to speak on our behalf.

A Health Care Proxy will allow doctors and other medical professionals to speak to your trusted family members. It will enable them to make significant and even life-saving decisions on your behalf. You can grant them the ability to make all the decisions or specify which decisions they can make. Your Health Care Proxy or a living will allow no extraordinary measures to be taken or authorize tissue or organ donation. These are decisions a parent or family member might not agree to or be willing to make.
