Making a New York Healthcare Power of Attorney
You can help give yourself and your loved ones peace of mind by having a Power of Attorney signed. If you ever become incapacitated, this means you've legally assigned someone you trust to make healthcare decisions for you. A New York Power of Attorney only kicks in when you can't make decisions.
Use the New York Healthcare Power of Attorney document if:
Nothing is as important as your health, so make sure you're covered by having a Power of Attorney in place. Whether you're in sound health or not, this is the only way to help ensure that someone you've selected can act on your behalf. It's important, too, if your health is declining, surgery is scheduled, or you've been diagnosed with a terminal illness. The person you choose, or their alternates, should ideally meet some key criteria. For example, they should be willing to uphold your wishes, be responsible, and live close enough that they can quickly get to your local hospital. When drafting a New York Power of Attorney, you might want to talk with a lawyer or doctor to make sure everything is covered. You can help protect you and your family during a potentially tough time by clarifying things with this effective document.
