Just because you've talked with someone you trust about what healthcare decisions you'd like—if you're ever unable to make those decisions yourself—doesn't mean they can act on your behalf if necessary. You will need a Power of Attorney signed to ensure that the person you've selected can legally make those calls should you become incapacitated. Our North Carolina Power of Attorney document can help make this happen.
A terminal illness, major surgery and declining health are all reasons to have a Power of Attorney. However, it's a smart precaution even if you're in wonderful health. It can help ensure that your future medical decisions stay in your control, through someone you completely trust. When deciding who should act on your behalf if you become incapacitated, keep a few things in mind; for instance, it pays to appoint someone who's on the same page as you, and lives nearby. You're giving someone a lot of responsibility, so you may want to consult with a doctor or lawyer as well. From Raleigh to Asheville, only a North Carolina Power of Attorney lets you be in charge of who makes medical calls for you.
