A Healthcare POA gives a designated person the authority to make health care decisions on behalf of the client when the client is not able to do so themselves. A health care agent should be an adult who is of sound mind and able to make difficult decisions under extremely pressure. Sometimes family or close friends are too far away to effectively asses critical health situations and sometimes it may be easier to discuss your healthcare wishes with an impartial third party who will follow your wishes above all other considerations. There are many things to consider when choosing a health care agent. We are here to help navigate the many options available and are ready and willing to step in when or if you need us.
