Powers of Attorney for Health Care Decisions 

Your financial power of attorney and your healthcare power of attorney can be the same person or different people depending on your wishes. There are benefits to each circumstance as well.

No matter how old you are, the possibility of incapacitation from an accident or as the result of an illness is always present. If you are ever incapacitated, having someone you can trust in charge of making your health care decisions is very important. With a medical Power of Attorney, you can give a trusted loved one the power to make medical decisions when you are unable to make them. Such decision-making powers may include:
  • Consenting to medical treatments
  • Choosing medical facilities for your treatment
  • Choosing your doctors and medical personnel
  • Determining who has visitation rights
  • Making organ donation decisions
  • Handling after-death decisions, such as consenting to an autopsy
  • Deciding who has access to your medical records
Designate your Medical Power of Attorney as part of your unique estate plan with the help of the attorneys at Knauf Law (previously Pankau Law). Schedule an appointment today!
