Preparing a living will and naming an agent under health care power of attorney can provide peace of mind to yourself and your loved ones.
If you are a health care agent for a loved one, you will also want to understand your responsibilities and what to expect.
The recommendations in this course – which are provided by the National Institute on Aging and the American Bar Association – will help you start the conversation, learn about health care choices, consider who to name as your agent under health care power of attorney, and obtain the appropriate legal forms.
Advance care planning involves medical and legal decisions, so be sure to consult your personal physicians and an attorney trained in elder law.
