How Does it Work?
If you were to become too ill to express your wishes regarding medical treatment, your healthcare power of attorney will activate and the person you assigned to this role will make healthcare decisions for you. For example, if you did not want life-saving measures to be taken if you cannot breathe on your own, your healthcare power of attorney can ensure this directive is enforced.
Having a healthcare power of attorney in place not only ensures that your wishes are respected, but also lifts a heavy burden off your loved ones who would otherwise have to guess how you would want to be treated. Ultimately, the more your loved ones know what your healthcare preferences are, the easier this overwhelming situation will be.
Choosing a Healthcare Power of Attorney
Needless to say, it is essential that you trust the person you assign to this role. You will be sharing a lot of intimate information with your healthcare power of attorney, so it is important that you choose someone with whom you feel comfortable. That said, even the best relationships can sometimes change, so if you feel differently about the person you chose, you are free to change your mind. To reverse your decision, you will need to eradicate the original document and create a new one.
