Living Will / Health Care Proxy
A Living Will generally describes the
circumstances under which you would request your
medical provider to terminate any further
treatment, if you were conscious and competent
to make those decisions. The Health Care Proxy
is the vehicle by which you appoint an Agent to
make those decisions for you, based on the
wishes you have expressed in the Living Will.
Accordingly, you will need to name an Agent,
typically a spouse, and an alternate Agent in
the event the first cannot serve for any reason.
Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney gives the person or persons
you designate the power and authority to act for
you and on your behalf in the event you become
incapacitated, incompetent, or too ill to take
care of your own affairs. It can be a general
Power of Attorney, or one limited to certain
aspects of your affairs. Typically, the Power of
Attorney is general and is intended to cover the
situation in which you will not be able to
handle your own affairs. You may appoint one
person to act as your Power of Attorney, or you
can choose two or three persons to act either
jointly or severally. That is, where they each
must agree to a course of action (jointly) or
any one of them can make the decision
(severally). Please provide us with that
information in the enclosed form.
