Living Wills And Durable Powers Of Attorney

In California, Advance Health Care Directives encompass both Durable Powers of Attorney for Health Care and Living Wills.

Advance health care directives include:

  • Appointment of Health Care Agent: In your AHCD you name a trusted person to make health care decisions for you during any period you are unable to do so yourself.
  • Authority of Agent: Your AHCD gives your Agent authority to make health care decisions consistent with your wishes and your specific health care instructions.
  • Health Care Directions: Your AHCD allows you to specify the types of medical treatment you receive in certain situations, and types of care you do not wish to receive.

Without an Advance Health Care Directive in place, decisions over your future medical treatment can be left in the hands of strangers. Advance health care directives place these decisions in the hands of trusted loved ones, and give loved ones the reassurance to carry out your wishes.

Our attorneys can help you establish estate planning documents that help you maintain control of your future medical treatment and spare your family from having to make medical decisions on your behalf without clear directions from you.
