Power of Attorney/Living Will

Power of Attorney
A power of attorney is a legal document that allows someone else to act on your behalf. Powers of Attorney can be helpful to anyone who want to choose a trusted person to act on their behalf when they cannot.

Durable Power of Attorney Vs. Regular Power of Attorney
The difference between a durable power of attorney in reference to a regular power of attorney has to do with whether the powers given to the agent remain effective after the onset of a disability. In other words, a regular power of attorney is no longer effective if the person becomes disabled. Alternatively, the “durable” power of attorney continues to be effective despite of any disability that may arise.

Living Will (Advanced Care Directive)
A living will is a written, legal document that outlines the medical treatments requested regarding the stage of end-of-life care. This document puts in writing the medical care that would and would not wanted when entering the ending stages of life. This forms extends to life sustaining treatment, comfort care as well as other aspects such as pain management and/or organ donation.
