If a time comes when you can't make medical decisions for yourself, a California Healthcare Power of Attorney helps your loved ones sort out who's making the decisions. Make things a little easier on your family by appointing someone you know and trust to take care of things with a California Healthcare Power of Attorney.
A California Healthcare Power of Attorney lets you legally choose someone to be in charge of your medical decisions. This document goes into action only if you're unable to make a decision, whether you're temporarily incapacitated or on life-sustaining support. It goes hand-in-hand with your Living Will (which states your end-of-life wishes). You'll want a Healthcare Power of Attorney if you want a trusted person to make other healthcare decisions on your behalf. There's no doubt that it's a big responsibility for the person you choose, so consider someone who lives locally and is willing to make the right decision for you. If you need help understanding the kinds of decisions that your agent may be faced with, consult with your doctor or your lawyer so it's all clear.
